Travelers believes arts and culture enrich lives by enhancing learning and building multi-cultural understanding.
Travelers supports organizations that enhance the health of our communities, enrich lives through arts and culture, and contribute directly to improved academic learning and access for low-income and underrepresented individuals. As a longtime supporter of arts and culture, Travelers awards grants to education-focused arts and cultural programs, with a focus in the following areas:
- Arts Education – Travelers funds organizations that incorporate the use of the arts in learning and to stimulate creativity, while supporting improved academic achievement in local public schools.
- Arts & Diversity – Travelers funds a wide range of organizations in order to build multi-cultural understanding in our communities. Travelers also aims to strengthen organizations that develop and present cultural and artistic traditions and/or provide access to various forms of art to low-income and diverse audiences.
- Enhancing Communities Through the Arts – Travelers provides a small number of operating grants and/or sponsorships for key arts organizations in our downtown neighborhoods of Hartford, Conn., and St. Paul, Minn., in order to contribute to the vitality of the region.
