Mission Statement                                                                                  

The Germantown Arts Alliance is an advocacy and funding organization whose mission is to promote, enrich and celebrate the community's cultural arts environment.


In 1987, the Germantown Board of Mayor and Aldermen established the Germantown Arts Commission for the purpose of allocating funds from the City of Germantown for community arts organizations.  Included was a long-range goal to make the Commission into an independent body within five years.


In 1992, knowing that an autonomous non-profit organization could function more effectively than a government controlled agency in securing increased funding for the arts, the Board of Mayor and Aldermen and a group of Germantown arts and civic leaders established the Germantown Arts Alliance.

Funding sources for the Germantown Arts Alliance have included the City of Germantown, Shelby County Government, Tennessee Arts Commission, Corporate Business and Individual Donors, Foundations and Fundraising Events.
