Over the past eight years, the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra has received nearly $130,000 in support from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, which has helped us to grow our audience in size and diversity, empower a new generation of jazz enthusiasts, and explore multi-faceted programming like our Many Faces of Miles endeavor. This type of funding strengthens our community, and enriches the quality of life in our neighborhoods for people of all ages. We hope you’ll take just a minute and learn a little more about this extremely important funding partner.
Cuyahoga Arts & Culture is the public funder of arts and culture organizations, programs and events in Cuyahoga County. Cuyahoga Arts & Culture’s sole funding source is a dedicated cigarette tax levied within Cuyahoga County. Established by voters in 2007, CAC has awarded over 1,200 grants since then, distributing over $125 million in tax dollars to more than 300 organizations based in the County. Renewal of this funding source will be on the ballot on November 3 for voters to consider.
