Congratulations to our partners at the University of Michigan Credit Union (UMCU) for the well-earned recognition of its commitment to community, arts, and for supporting the region’s cultural institutions.
Presented annually by Americans for the Arts, the Arts + Business Partnership Awards recognize businesses of all sizes from around the country for exceptional mutually beneficial, innovative, and sustained collaborations with the arts.
As stated by our friends at UMS, “The UMCU was nominated for the award because of its generous spirit of collaboration and bold vision for community impact, which included the creation of the UMCU Arts Adventures Program at both UMS and the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) through a $1.5 million gift in 2016. This commitment, made during the University of Michigan’s Victors for Michigan campaign, was the largest corporate campaign gift to the arts and the first corporate endowment supporting programming at the University of Michigan. It allows UMS and UMMA to provide thousands of K-12 and U-M students with extraordinary, affordable access to a diverse array of arts offerings for generations to come.”
