Funded in part by the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Major support for WPA comes from its members, Board of Directors, invaluable volunteers, foundations, corporations, government agencies, and individuals. On behalf of the WPA Board of Directors, the staff, and the hundreds of artists who drive our programs and benefit from everything we do, we would like to thank the following for their generosity. 

* Founders Circle members—those who made gifts of $5,000 or more to our 40th Anniversary Campaign between 2014 and 2016.
