Since 1995, when The Artists' Charitable Fund was started as a non-profit dedicated to assisting artists facing financial crisis due to medical, dental, flood, fire or other catastrophe, it has provided assistance to more than a hundred artists all over the United States.
In 2013 alone, the Fund provided financial assistance to thirteen artists, including two who lost homes and studios to the "thousand year flood," in Larimer County, Colorado. So far, in 2014, in addition to assisting artists with medical/dental bills, the Fund has provided assistance to an Oklahoma artist who lost his studio and everything in it to a fire.
It is thanks to artists who donate original paintings and sculpture for our annual auction, and supporters who attend and purchase that art at our annual auction that The Fund can continue to provide assistance to artists in crisis.
