Invest in Texas' Creative Future

Celebrate what has kept us connected, engaged, hopeful, and comforted this year - the arts and creativity!

Honor your friends and loved ones with a gift that inspires the imagination and self-expression of children who have little to no access to creative resources.

This year, access to the arts has never been more important. The arts improve mental health and sustain social and emotional learning while also increasing academic success and cultivating lifelong skills.

A gift to the Texas Cultural Trust supports our work to increase arts access and awareness about the importance of the arts and creative sector in Texas.

Your support at any level is impactful:
