We’re the Quad Cities Cultural Trust, and we provide funds to make art happen and culture thrive in our region.

The Quad Cities Cultural Trust was formed in 2007 to support our region’s 5 core cultural organizations.


We – your business associates and colleagues – are committed to the health and growth of our region. And a thriving arts and cultural scene is key to both.

We invite you to join us. 

Together, we can meet the most urgent needs and visions of our supported organizations.

Together, we can send a powerful message to the entire Quad Cities region that arts and culture are critical to quality of life.

Together, we can make the kind of difference that endures for generations.

Cultural and educational benefits and amenities enhance the quality of life, they excite the young, and they attract and hold an active and vibrant work force. The Quad Cities Cultural Trust provides us with the vehicle that will support our community cultural entities and will assure positive community enhancement and healthy growth. Bechtel Trust support is therefore mandated.
