Ways to Give

A symphony takes more than one person playing to make it work. It’s the same when it comes to supporting the arts.

When you give to UPAF, you’re part of a community of people committed to keeping the arts alive in Southeastern Wisconsin. 

Since 1967, UPAF has helped Southeastern Wisconsin’s performing arts scene thrive thanks to contributions from people like you. We believe the arts lift us and make our community a better place to live.

Your gift supports more than 25 performing arts groups that enrich the lives of area residents young and old. With funding from UPAF, many of these groups are able to offer free or “pay-what-you-can” nights so nobody has to miss out on a fantastic performance. Woven into the mission of many local groups are unique educational opportunities that truly offer something for everyone. They can’t do it without UPAF, and we can’t do it without you.

There’s more than one way to support the arts…

Whether you give a little or a lot, your contribution of dollars or time helps keep our arts culture thriving. You can
