Current Members

Our valued members — who represent a broad range of artistic disciplines, budget sizes, and geographic regions — are the backbone of Arts Alliance Illinois. As part of the largest and most interconnected, state-level arts advocacy network in the country, Alliance members help us advance widespread support for the arts and arts education.

Membership dues are designed to be easily affordable, are determined by annual budget size, and new memberships may be initiated at any time. Entities with budgets up to $2.5 million are our Organizational Members, while those with budgets above $2.5 million join the Alliance as Institutional Partners. In addition, you can join our valued Individual Members for as little as $25 per year.

To become a member today, click here or contact Zachary Whittenburg, Communications and Engagement Director, via email at or by phone at 312-855-3105 ext. 11.
