Arts funding: "It's about the economy stupid" and so much more


Why should the strength and growth of the nation's 100,000 cultural arts institutions be a national priority?

The answer is multi-layered. Not only do these institutions help to "define who we are as a people" and offer insight into our societal past, present and future, they are a positive driving force of our economy.

According to a 2007 Arts & Economic Prosperity report, the arts have an annual total economic impact of $166 billion, not to mention the 5.7 million jobs and nearly $30 billion in tax revenue the industry generates as cited in the June 8, 2009 issue of Time Magazine. In Boca Raton alone, the annual economic impact of the collective non-profit cultural institutions is $94.7 million, according to the 2007 Economic Impact Study conducted by the Boca Raton Cultural Consortium.

Furthermore, countless studies have demonstrated the positive educational benefits for students. A large majority of the country's top technology-based CEOs report that having various arts disciplines as an integral part of their scholastic backgrounds allowed them to expand cognitive thinking and rise to top positions within their organizations.

One subject that has scarcely been acknowledged in recent times is the value of cultural arts exchange. And as recent world events have demonstrated, it is imperative that the United States regain moral ground and restore our international standing as a world leader. This can, in part, be accomplished through further participation in global cultural exchange. This exchange has the ability to remind us that we are all a part of one human family. It also has the potential to go a long way toward establishing greater understanding and commonality among divergent cultures.

Our nation's well-being depends upon the positive impact produced by the arts sector, both domestically and internationally.

What is a CVV Code?

CVV2 is a security measure for credit cards. Since a CVV2 number is listed on your credit card, but is not stored anywhere, the only way to know the correct CVV2 number for your credit card is to physically have possession of the card itself. All VISA, Discover, MasterCard and American Express cards made in America in the past 5 years or so have a CVV2 number. However Diners Club does not use a security code.

How to find your CVV2 number:
On a VISA, Discover or MasterCard, please turn your card over and look in the signature strip. You will find (either the entire 16-digit string of your card number, OR just the last 4 digits), followed by a space, followed by a 3-digit number. That 3-digit number is your CVV2 number.(See below)

VISA, Discover & MasterCard

On American Express Cards, the CVV2 number is a 4-digit number that appears above the end of your card number. (See below)
