Funding through the UCF encourages students in the Emerging Artist program and the Binghamton Youth Symphony, as well as supports the musicians of the Binghamton Community Orchestra, the Downtown Singers and the Binghamton Philharmonic Orchestra. In addition, it further sustains the performances at EPAC, The Goodwill Theater, the Summer Savoyards, SPARE Productions, the ART Mission and Theater and S.R.O. Productions. The UCF funded the poetry of the Binghamton Center for Writers and individual artist like Scott Danzig, Lori Dayton and Brian Murphy to present to works to our community.”

Arthur Garrison, BCAC Interim Executive Director adds that, “Through the UCF the arts are brought to many more people by collaborative efforts with organizations like the Boys and Girls Club, Kopernik Society, the Phelps Mansion and the Southern Tier Solar Works. It helps produce art exhibits at the Roberson Museum, Vestal Museum and Nanticoke Valley Historic Society which are available to the entire community. In addition, at the Broome County Arts Council, we provide exhibit space to local artists, deliver seminars on the business of art and promote artists and arts events.”

The Campaign Goal for 2018 is $282,000.
