Music, art, theatre, and history can positively change the trajectory of your life. Help us improve our community by working together.
Every year during the annual campaign, UFAH solicits over 500 businesses and members of the community to raise funds for twelve member organizations.
The arts organizations in La Crosse do more than entertain. They build friendships, foster personal growth, and bring joy to so many people. I am forever grateful to live in such a vibrant community with so many opportunities to create and learn.”
2023 Campaign Chair
Each day we find a new discovery that tells us more about the lives of those who came before us. The thrill of adventure and the excitement of mystery carries a brightness to aspiring archaeologists everywhere."

The impact of the arts and humanities
The La Crosse area is like no other, with unmatched natural beauty, a vibrant and growing city center and an arts community second to none.
UFAH's member groups reach over 133,643 audience members and participants.
The arts and humanities not only beneﬁt the local economy, they beneﬁt our spirit and well-being. They give us the chance to step out of our everyday lives and experience beauty, expression, and inspiration.
2022 Campaign Events
Our first event of 2022 was at the Capella for the Performing Arts in honor of Mark Mattison and our second event was at the Bentley-Wheeler home in honor of Marie Louise Lokken. Between both events, we raised $12,812, and our guests enjoyed performances by guest artists and member groups. We had two hands on art projects by the Pump House and a shovel test by the Mississippi Valley Archaeology Center.
