Sign the Appeal

YES, I want NYC to invest 1% for Culture

New York City’s 1,300 plus cultural organizations and thousands of artists are essential to the economy and identity of the city, creating more than 120,00 jobs and generating $8.1 billion in economic activity. And yet, nonprofit culture receives less than one-fourth of one percent of the overall city expense budget.

Sign the appeal and tell future city leaders: culture is worth one percent of the city expense budget.

Our Mission

One Percent for Culture is a non-partisan, grassroots, five-borough campaign whose mission is to demonstrate the value of culture to New York City. The campaign will generate private and public support for an increase in the city’s financial commitment to the nonprofit cultural community, including artists of all disciplines, to a full one percent of the municipal expense budget.
