Founded in 1998, the Newport Beach Arts Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is the fund-raising arm of the Newport Beach City Arts Commission. The Arts Commission and the Newport Beach Arts Foundation are dedicated to supporting the visual and performing arts.
The Foundation engages businesses, individuals and volunteers in activities to enrich community life throughout the year by supporting the Arts Commission and its cultural arts programming. In additional to supporting the City Cultural Arts activities, the Foundation periodically hosts visits to galleries, museums, theater and musical performances.
