The Honorable [FULL NAME]
U.S. House of Representative / United States Senate
Washington, DC 20515 (House) 20510 (Senate)
Dear Representative / Senator [LAST NAME]:
Public encouragement and financial assistance for arts and humanities programs are very much in the hearts and minds of the citizens of this country. I urge you to support these programs in discussions with other members of Congress and the general public. Moreover, whenever possible, please vote in favor of increased funding for the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
With a relatively small investment from Congress, the federal cultural agencies provide access to high-quality educational programs and resources that reach millions of Americans each year. To this end, it is critical that we continue to strengthen funding for the arts and scholarly research through increased appropriations for the NEA and NEH.
As an individual who is passionate about our nation’s arts programs and a member of the College Art Association, I look forward to your powerful recognition concerning arts and humanities funding. If ever I can be of assistance to you in this endeavor, please do not hesitate to contact me.
[YOUR ORGANIZATION OR MEMBER OF CAA]
