Current COVID-19 Emergency Funds and Opportunities for Artists and Arts Organizations
Emergency Fund for Artists and Creative Workers
The Emergency Fund for Artists and Creative Workers supports creative professionals who have experienced a financial loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund is open to artists at all levels of their careers, in a broad variety of disciplines. RACC will make awards up to $500 in order to support as many individual artists as possible, prioritizing those without access to other COVID-19 relief funds.
*Applications are currently closed for the Emergency Fund for Artists and Creative Workers. As new funds are donated and identified, RACC will award additional funds directly to creative professionals in need.
Donations to this fund will be distributed directly to creative professionals in need.
Because of the generous support for our Emergency Fund for Artists, we have funded over 200 individual artists with over $100,000! In this time of crisis and discovery, you have our deepest gratitude for showing that art matters!
We will continue to support artists with your partnership throughout these challenging times. We are able to accept gifts of stock, one-time, and monthly support for this Emergency Fund. As RACC continues to assess and respond to the rapidly changing landscape for our artists, students, and support structures, we appreciate you!
Thank you for caring and passing art on!
