    General Support/Program
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.
