Grants to this Grantee
for the East Bay Fund for Artists  
With this funding, the East Bay Community Foundation would independently continue the work of the Fund for Artists, previously a Hewlett Foundation supported collaboration that included the San Francisco Foundation and the Marin Community Foundation. The goal of this regranting program is to build individual donor capacity and bring new resources to artists for commissions, fellowships, and residencies. To date, the Fund for Artists has leveraged more than $600,000 in gifts from 3,000 individual donors. The East Bay Community Foundation will continue on its own to provide an important and strategic source of support for individual artists in a challenging economic environment.
for the East Bay Fund for Artists  
The East Bay Community Foundation is an intermediary regranting partner that focuses on building fundraising capacity of individual artists and small arts organizations through its East Bay Fund for Artists program. The program provides training and technical assistance for participants to market their work and develop individual donor relationships, reaching approximately 46 artists each year.
for the East Bay Fund for Artists  
The East Bay Community Foundation continues to administer the Fund for Artists, which works to build individual donor capacity and bring new resources to individual artists and very small arts organizations. An important aspect of the program remains training and technical assistance for participants in how to market their work and develop individual donor relationships. The Community Foundation is committed to this program as an important source of support and training for the artistic community in the East Bay. As the cost of doing business in the Bay Area has increased in recent years, applicants to the fund have also increased — 24 percent in the last year. A renewal grant with a significant increase will enable the Fund for Artists to leverage matching funds from individuals, and therefore reach more artists at this time of high demand and artist displacement.
