BHCA is a nonprofit, volunteer organization working to provide diverse cultural and arts programming to residents of Bellefonte, Pennsylvania and surrounding communities at no charge.  BHCA also strives to increase awareness of the significance of Bellefonte's cultural heritage, as reflected in rich Victorian architecture, and of the value of its preservation.

BHCA is supported, in part, by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency, through its regional arts funding partnership, Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA).  State government funding comes through an annual appropriation by Pennsylvania's General Assembly and from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.  PPA is administered in this region by the Pennsylvania Rural Arts alliance.
