Become a Member of the Alliance

Whether you join the Alliance as an Individual, a Member Organization, or an Enterprise Partner, you become part of the largest and most interconnected, state-level arts advocacy network in the country. By becoming an Alliance member, you also take your place in a growing movement to ensure the health, vitality, and vibrancy of communities across Illinois, and that the arts remain present and positioned to change the lives of all Illinois residents.

Together, we give voice to a creative state.

Alliance Member Organization dues for 501(c)(3) and other nonprofit or tax-exempt entities are designed to be easily affordable and are determined by the annual budget for your current fiscal year. Corporations, LLCs, and other for-profit companies are encouraged to join the Alliance as Enterprise Partners, whose annual dues are determined by your number of paid employees. Alliance Member Organizations and Enterprise Partners affiliated with Illinois colleges and universities are eligible for additional recognition as Creative Campus members, plus select benefits which may be extended to faculty, students, and / or alumni of those institutions of higher education. In addition, you can join our valued Individual Members for as little as $25 per year.
