Today we honor our top #1 national arts and culture nonprofit: The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). While the NEA is a nonprofit, it is not a 501c3; therefore, we are unable to distribute donations to this organization. However, if you’re still interested in supporting their great work, we encourage you to donate directly to them.

Our experts particularly praised the NEA for its years spent supporting a variety of artists and groups. Here’s some more information about the National Endowment for the Arts:

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is a public agency dedicated to supporting excellence in the arts, both new and established; bringing the arts to all Americans; and providing leadership in arts education. Established by Congress in 1965 as an independent agency of the federal government, the Arts Endowment is the largest annual national funder of the arts, bringing great art to all 50 states, including rural areas, inner cities, and military bases.

NEA grants have a powerful multiplying effect, with each grant dollar typically generating up to seven times more in matching resources. Since its establishment, the NEA has awarded more than $4 billion in funding, including early support for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial design competition, the Sundance Film Festival, Spoleto Festival USA, PBS’s Great Performances series, and the American Film Institute.
