People for the Arts


About People for the Arts

People for the Arts is a campaign that celebrates the important work that artists and creators contribute to our society.

While we are happy to do our part in the private sector, we value the role of public support for organizations like the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and more, as vital parts of the infrastructure that make the arts come alive in the United States. 

People for the Arts was launched by Patreon and is supported by creator-centric organizations like the Internet Creators Guild, Ideo, Teespring, and Wattpad.


About Patreon

Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to get paid. Patreon connects creators with their biggest fans, and enables those fans to become paying members, or patrons, of their favorite creators. Co-founded in 2013 by YouTube star Jack Conte of the band Pomplamoose, we believe that every creator in today's digital economy should get paid.


Patreon is the best place for creators to establish ongoing and predictable monthly revenue and expand their career as a creator. Patreon also helps fans connect in a new way with the creators they love most. Today, Patreon pays millions of dollars every month to the tens of thousands of creators who have Patreon pages, whether they are creating podcasts, music, fiction, game streams, online videos, photography, visual art, and more.
