Annual UCF Campaign


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 Broome County 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 Orchestra, Bundy Museum of History and Art, the Discovery Center of the Southern Tier, Endicott Performing Arts Center, Goodwill Theatre, Roberson Museum & Science Center, and Tri-Cities Opera; and seven smaller project grants given to local artists and non-profit arts organizations in 2021.
