The United Arts Fund is being established to support the Rock County region's cultural health which is considered a necessary element to enhance the quality of life which every community enjoys. The first county-wide collaborative arts fund drive is being established to assist and sustain Rock County nonprofit arts organizations and artists. Not only will this help the arts groups by simplifying funding activities; it will lessen the number of requests made to local businesses, corporations and individuals each year.
