Give for Greatness has raised and distributed nearly $200,000 for local arts and cultural groups since 2011! With the communities' support G4G has been able to fund 60 arts and cultural organizations in WNY. Because of you we’re making WNY a community where the arts don’t just survive but thrive!

If you're on this site we assume you're a supporter of the arts and we applaud you. Western New York's rich cultural life is an essential reason that the Buffalo/Niagara region is such a great place to live.

Great cities and towns can be measured by their vibrant cultural communities. Whether it’s New York or Paris, or small places like Key West or Niagara-on-the-Lake, a strong arts community signals a thriving, healthy society. We are continuing our efforts to support and grow our culturals and we’d love for you to be a part of this wonderful effort.

Have a look around this site to read about the institutions we'd like to help. If you like you can make a secure tax deductible donation online at the ""Give Now" tab. You can also click the "Get Involved" tab and learn how you or your organization can get involved, volunteer or throw an event!!
