The Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture and the Arts, founded in 1989, is a nonprofit organization of businesses committed to supporting the arts. The TBBCA is an affiliate of the national Business Committee for the Arts, which in 2008 became a part of Americans for the Arts. In 2009, TBBCA changed its name from Tampa Bay Business Committee for the Arts to better reflect the mission of the organization. The mission of the TBBCA is to help build a stronger arts and cultural community with the support of area businesses. It works with businesses and cultural institutions in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.
