Since April, the Artist Advocacy Foundation has given grants to 23 artists and venues to help offset the loss of revenue from work cancellation due to Covid-19.
We’re operating in uncertain times, and everyone is having to adjust to changing paradigms and new technologies. Performing artists are having to find new ways to create and present their art, and to engender appreciation for their artistic endeavors. Audiences and art-appreciators, too, are having to adjust; to consider and recognize what touches their soul and how they can express their appreciation through philanthropic contributions, which are now taking the place of ticket-purchases, entry fees, cover-charges, etc.
If you would like to help an artist who inspires you, you can donate to AAF and we will get your contribution to that artist (90 percent of your donation will go directly to the artist and 10 percent will go to AAF to cover administrative cost to help us help other artists.)
If you do not have a specific artist in mind, but recognize the urgent need and would like to help, please donate now, and we will disburse your contributions to artists in need.
AAF is a 501 c 3 public charity. Your contributions are tax deductible.
