COVID-19 - Supporting the Arts & Culture Community

The events of the recent weeks have been surreal. We are in unprecedented times, and people are coming together to support each other, the most vulnerable, and the community in new and extraordinary ways.

We need your help. We are redirecting all of our efforts to combat the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our cultural sector.

Ultimately we want to ensure our organizations are able to weather this storm and are ready to re-open when appropriate and be in a strong position to serve our community for many years to come.

Your gift now will help to support these immediate needs and will help provide the long-term recovery funds our treasured institutions and artists will need to rebound quickly.

The Fund for the Arts is working side-by-side with our local arts partners- who are already reporting significant revenue losses. It is important to note, a loss of revenue for local arts organizations is not loss of profit, it is a loss of the funds that provide paychecks for artists, staff members, and contract workers. The Fund for the Arts is working aggressively to identify new funding opportunities to help raise emergency funds necessary to address the critical need caused by the sector-wide closures. We have created a Cultural Task Force in partnership with the Arts and Culture Alliance. We are actively coordinating advocacy efforts with our elected officials on the local, state, and federal levels.

As we continue this time of social-distancing and uncertainty, we will look to the arts for inspiration and comfort in new ways, and the arts will need our support more than ever.

We invite you to visit our new webpage dedicated to virtual and online arts and cultural experiences for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. We also invite you to submit content for that website by clicking here.

We are working to maximize the impact of the arts on economic development, education and the quality of life for everyone by generating resources, inspiring excellence, and creating community connections.
