One Percent for Culture

Culture Makes This City Great

New York City's 1,200 plus cultural organizations and thousands of artists are essential to the economy and identity of the city, creating more than 54,000 jobs and generating $7.6 billion in economic activity. And yet, nonprofit culture receives less than one-fourth of one percent of the overall city expense budget.

Sign the appeal and tell future city leaders: culture is worth one percent of the city expense budget.
