Arts Impact Endowment Poll

In November 2018, San Francisco voters overwhelmingly approved Proposition E which allocates a portion of hotel tax revenues for arts and cultural purposes. These resources are to be allocated to several distinct City departments and programs annually. The Arts Impact Endowment is one component of Proposition E and mandates that the San Francisco Arts Commission engage in a community process to develop a five-year cultural services allocation plan. This plan will be reviewed annually and approved by the Arts Commission and the City Administrator. The following potential impact areas would work to improve San Francisco’s unique quality of life by supporting artists, arts organizations, youth, audience members and cultural workers.

Note: This poll closes on Friday January 25, 2019.
