Annual UCF Campaign

The 2021 United Cultural Fund Campaign:


Advancing the awareness, participation and value of the arts and allowing for one-stop shopping to support the varied LOCAL ARTS in Broome County.

Since 1986, the Broome County Arts Council’s United Cultural Fund (UCF), the locally-funded combined campaign that has raised over $10 million for the arts in Broome County. The annual UCF campaign funds grants for general operating support and project grants to LOCAL nonprofits and individual artists

The UCF grantees collectively had expenditures of more than $3 million in Broome County in 2019. The grantees entertained, educated, employed and/or engaged more than 165,000 county residents and visitors, 80 percent of whom visited a local establishment before or after an event. Financial benefits are a two-way street – yet another reason for supporting the ARTS and the UCF.

Recipients of UCF general operating support funding include:  Binghamton Philharmonic, Endicott Performing Arts Center, Goodwill Theatre, Roberson Museum & Science Center, and Tri-Cities Opera; and 20 smaller grants given to local artists and non-profit arts organizations in 2020.

An investment in the 2021 UCF Campaign contributes directly to the advancement of our quality of life, to tourism and ongoing economic development. You are investing in your community pride and growth!
