Support the California Arts Council. Fund AB580

Dear Friends,

We are writing to let you know about our efforts to increase the state funding allocation to the California Arts Council to $75 million per year.

The CAC’s current state funding allocation is just over $1 million (or 3 cents per California resident)—the second lowest in the nation (by comparison New York state is $5.80 per person and Minnesota is over $10 per person). Increasing the CAC’s funding to $75 million (just under $2 per person) will improve our rating to a more respectable 12th.
