If you are able right now, we highly encourage anyone to support the organizations, museums, galleries and artists that they already have relationships with. Check in with them and ask how you can help most. For most organizations that means making direct, unrestricted gifts. Join as a member! Buy art! Know that however you support you are investing in the future of this community.
In addition, here are some fundraising efforts that are worthy of supporting:
Support ongoing $5,000 relief grants for artists across the country.
A coalition of LA-based art workers has created this fund which will award $1,000 to local art workers.
Only fund in LA of its kind that provides $1,000 grants for female-identifying, trans or nonbinary artists. They quickly reached capacity with the funding they had and are looking to raise additional funds to reissue more grants.
Americans for the Arts calls on our nation’s public and private sector grantmakers and individual philanthropists in the arts to help respond to the impact of COVID-19 on the infrastructure of our nonprofit cultural organizations and artists.
