A thriving arts scene and diverse cultural offerings bring enjoyment to residents and visitors and are important drivers of our economy.
Arizona's appreciation for the arts runs deep
Public policy engagement
The Arizona Community Foundation has established public policy priorities to drive change within the arts.
A vibrant arts and culture community encourages us to express ourselves in creative, innovative ways and celebrate our state’s rich history and diversity.
In recognition of these valuable contributions, the Arizona Community Foundation prioritizes arts and culture as a key area for strategic investment and collaboration.
The Newton and Betty Rosenzweig Fund for the Arts
To enable investments in arts and culture to benefit Arizona residents and communities, the Arizona Community Foundation created the Newton and Betty Rosenzweig Fund for the Arts. This fund honors the legacy of the Rosenzweig family, whose generosity and philanthropic contributions helped shape the charitable landscape of the Phoenix community. The Rosenzweig Fund aims to strengthen the vitality, impact and sustainability of the arts sector statewide.
