Arts Prevail Fund

Categories: Arts and Culture


The Arts Prevail Fund was established by the Community Foundation to promote racial equity in the arts and to provide adaptive equipment needed by arts organizations in response to COVID-19, which may include personal protective equipment and technological support to continue with virtual programming.

  • Multimedia projects or artwork created in response and to support documentation of the racial justice movement;
  • Programs or projects from nonprofits led by artists of color; and
  • Technology and safety equipment.
