The Cultural Alliance of York County launched its annual appeal for funds during an event at the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center in York City Wednesday night.
All told, the organization that provides funding for arts projects throughout the county has a goal to raise more than $1 million -- $820,000 cash and $225,000 in in-kind services -- this year.
So far this year, $320,000 has been raised, said Dave Kennedy, an alliance board member.
In 2013, the alliance provided $535,000 to eight partner agencies. The amounts given out to each ranged from $262,400 to the Strand-Capitol to $4,079 to the York Youth Symphony Orchestra.
"Piece by piece, project by project ... we are creating community," Kennedy said.
Since 2000, the campaign has granted $7.5 million cash and more than $2 million in-kind support throughout the county.
The 2014 campaign ends March 31.
