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.
