Arts and Culture

Arts and cultural institutions are essential to making our communities vibrant.

They help provide meaning and fulfillment so that we can all enjoy a better quality of life. Providing this enrichment to our society, however, comes with a cost. Organizations need to plan for years in advance and make critical financial commitments, while being reliant on the generosity of donors. The BPM Nonprofit team is deeply experienced with arts and cultural institutions, helping them navigate the ever changing tides of industry updates and regulations. As the premier nonprofit accountants and consultants, we have worked with a number of world-class cultural organizations of varying types, including:

  • Centers for the Arts
  • Festivals
  • Museums
  • Performing Arts
  • Visual Arts

Relying on public support, complying with regulations, building reserves, and establishing sufficient capacity and facilities are just a few of the financial and operational challenges that arts and cultural institutions must face.
