UPAF distributes $8 million

United Performing Arts Fund (UPAF) announced today that it will distribute a record-breaking $8,338,000 this fiscal year to Southeastern Wisconsin performing arts groups.

An additional $207,680 will go to 23 affiliates.

"Increasing our allocation by almost 10% over last year demonstrates not only UPAF's commitment to the performing arts in Southeastern Wisconsin, but also the community's allegiance," said UPAF President and CEO Deanna L. Tillisch. "An important part of our mission is to ensure that as many dollars as possible are judiciously allocated. This is vital to sustaining a vibrant performing arts scene in Southeastern Wisconsin."
