The United Performing Arts Fund, or UPAF, supports arts organizations of various types across Milwaukee, from music to the visual and performing arts. The organization began in 1967 as a way to stabilize the finances of Milwaukee’s prominent performing arts groups, including the Milwaukee Repertory Theater.
