Catalyzing Collier’s

Arts Community

UAC is the heart of the arts in Collier County. It serves as Collier’s arts umbrella, like a chamber of commerce for the arts, and a uniting thread through all the arts in our community. UAC develops mutually beneficial collaborations and partnerships among people, organizations, and businesses from all arts disciplines, which positively impact opportunities and growth for all in Collier and beyond. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity, UAC depends upon generous corporate, grant, and individual support for its success in serving all the arts for all of Collier.

For the first time in history, Florida's arts grants were vetoed by its governor, including UAC's grant for this fiscal year starting July 1. We urgently need your help to prevent cutting our programs for those who need it most in Collier County and every penny counts! Will you please consider giving any amount you can to help us keep serving our children, veterans, and seniors? Give your support here and please leave us a message about why the arts matter to you!
