ARTS & ECONOMIC PROSPERITY SURVEY
We know that our non-profit arts and cultural organizations are GREAT for our community in all kinds of ways, but did you know that they do an INCREDIBLE job of supporting jobs and growing our local economy, too? During 2016, Waco had the privilege of being one of the focus cities for Americans for the Arts' National survey into "The Arts & Economic Prosperity." This was the 5th such study over a 20 year period and the first time Waco has been able to participate. It provides valuable information about our sector's economic impact.
Waco's non-profit arts and cultural organizations deliver $63.7 million of economic impact per year, supporting over 2,000 full-time equivalent jobs, and earning over $7 million in tax revenue for local and state governments.
