No. Bloomberg Connects was developed by Bloomberg Philanthropies as part of their ongoing support of arts and culture. We understand the arts and culture sector has limited resources which is why we never charge our partners. In addition to providing them with free access to the platform, we also provide them with onboarding, technology and marketing support to help them reach as broad an audience as possible. We believe digital technology has the power to make the art and offerings of cultural organizations more accessible — not just to those visiting in person, but to people around the world.
