Our community-wide Annual Campaign is vital to every aspect of our mission. Each year, 650 donors – individuals, businesses, foundations, and our city and state governments – give generously in support of the arts in Chattanooga and Hamilton County through ArtsBuild.

The campaign supports not only the grants invested back into the community with our Community Arts Partners, but also all of ArtsBuild’s education programs, trainings, and special initiatives that support the overall health of the arts community.
