Lin-Manuel Miranda Launches Fund to Support Arts in Puerto Rico

Award-winning composer, lyricist, and actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, his family, and Hamilton have partnered with the Flamboyan Foundation to create the Flamboyan Arts Fund. This limited-term fund will be dedicated to supporting institutions, arts groups, and independent artists to ensure that the arts and culture continue to flourish through the rebuilding of Puerto Rico.

According to the Flamboyan Foundation, “Research has demonstrated that the arts provide immeasurable benefits to students, both socially and academically. And, as a cornerstone of Puerto Rico’s vibrant culture, the arts community not only provides important historical connection and creativity that impacts education, but it also has the potential to support the revitalization of tourism. Yet many arts institutions and artists on the island are at risk. By stabilizing the arts community, we can ensure families and communities have spaces for shared connection and creative expression. Together, we can help ensure that arts and communities are not just surviving, but are thriving.”
