Vision Funds to Support Tulsa Non-Profit Arts Organizations
In fiscal year 2014, $1.23 billion in public funding was appropriated to the arts. Of that, local municipalities provided 63% while state governments accounted for 25% and the federal government 12%.
Federal $ 146,000,000 State $ 307,000,000 Local $ 777,000,000
When governments increase their support for the arts, they are generating tax revenues, jobs, and a creativity based economy.
According to the U.S. Census, in 2011 the value of arts and cultural production in America was $504 billion, or nearly 3.2% of gross domestic product (GDP). For context, consider that the estimated value of U.S. travel and tourism in 2011 was only 2.8% of GDP.
The arts put people to work. By investing in the arts, the public sector is fostering a skilled work force of creative occupations that contribute to economic productivity.
The arts attract tourism revenue. Cultural tourism is a huge market, comprising some 129.6 million cultural travelers, whose participation in cultural and/or heritage activities contributes more than $171 billion each year to the U.S. economy.
Local governments are realizing the benefits of investing in the arts. $777,000,000 Hotel/Motel Tax Sales Tax Arts Tax

Columbus $5,000,000 The Columbus Ohio Hotel/Motel Bed Tax generates about $5 million to local non-profit arts groups.
