The Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) receives funding from a variety of sources. Over the years, TCA has accepted gifts and grants from individuals, corporations, private foundations, and other state agencies. These gifts tend to be targeted towards a particular purpose, often leveraging TCA’s statewide reach to achieve a particular goal. TCA is always open to partnering with other organizations and individuals to make Texas a great place for the arts.

As a state agency, the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) is categorized under section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code, just like a state university. As such, contributions are deductible by donors. Bequests, legacies, devices, transfers of gifts to or for their use are deductible for Federal, estate and gift tax purposes under the provisions of sections 2055, 2106, and 2522 of the Internal Revenue Code.

TCA also has a partnership with a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that could accept a gift on behalf of the agency.
