Arts and Economic Prosperity Calculator from AFTA

The Arts & Economic Prosperity III Calculator is a free and simple tool that makes it possible for you to estimate the economic impact of your nonprofit arts and culture organization—or even your entire nonprofit arts community—on your local economy. These analyses are based on research findings from the 156 communities and regions that were part of Arts & Economic Prosperity III, Americans for the Arts' national economic impact study of nonprofit arts and culture organizations and their audiences.

Before you use this calculator we ask that you learn more about these estimates, which are based on similarly populated communities and have a range of accuracy. We're confident that having a clear understanding of your numbers will bolster the strength of your economic impact argument.
