Cultural Solidarity Fund
In the spirit of coalition and resource sharing, NYC arts and cultural organizations of all sizes and structures continue to come together to grow a joint Cultural Solidarity Fund that provides $500 relief microgrants to NYC artists and cultural workers.
To date, more than 200 organizations and individuals have come together to raise $125,000. We received an overwhelming 2,722 applications with 56% of applicants expressing dire need for food and housing funds, far outpacing the current funds available.
We were able to fund 9% of applicants and our new goal is to raise $300,000 by May 15th, in order to fund all priority applicants.
We will not be re-opening applications at this time, and we are focusing our efforts in funding as many applicants we have received as possible.
