COVID-19 Arts & Culture Relief Fund
Bonfils-Stanton Foundation and The Denver Foundation have teamed up to create the COVID-19 Arts & Culture Relief Fund aimed at helping metro Denver small and mid-sized arts & culture organizations survive this crisis. Bonfils-Stanton Foundation has committed $1 million toward the COVID-19 Arts & Culture Relief Fund, administered by The Denver Foundation. Other contributors include The Denver Foundation, Denver Arts & Venues, Gates Family Foundation and PNC Bank, plus local arts philanthropists.
Colorado Artist Relief Fund
The Colorado Artist Relief Fund supports individual artists experiencing economic distress as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This fund is a collaboration between multiple funders and arts organizations working at state, regional, and local levels, such as Denver Arts & Venues, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Colorado Creative Industries, and RedLine Contemporary Art Center. The partnership addresses the urgent need for timely and centralized support, streamlines relief efforts and increases funds for individual artists. The fund will pool private and public funding to be administered and distributed through RedLine.
