for support of the Creative Work Fund  
The Creative Work Fund supports artists and nonprofit organizations in creating new art works through collaboration. It celebrates the role of artists as problem solvers, and art-making as a profound contribution to the strengthening of communities. Project support grants are offered in multiple disciplines, and artists receive a large majority of each award. Since its founding in 1994 with funds from the Haas family, the Creative Work Fund has awarded more than $10 million in grants to more than 250 artists. A grant to the Fund will enable it to increase the number of awards given each year, stretch the organization’s outreach to better serve outlying counties, and continue to foster collaborations between artists and organizations that address an array of vital community issues.
