Emergency


ARTISTS' FELLOWSHIP, INC.

PROGRAM : The Artists' Fellowship, Inc. is a private, charitable foundation that assists professional fine artists (painters, graphic artists, sculptors) and their families in times of emergency, disability, or bereavement. The Artists' Fellowship's Board of Trustees and Officers all serve as volunteers in service to our community of artists. Assistance is given without expectation of repayment. One does not need to be a Member of the Fellowship to receive assistance; neither does membership in the Artists?Fellowship entitle one to assistance from the foundation. The Artists' Fellowship cannot aid every artist who applies, nor does it award scholarship funds or "fellowships" for study, schooling, or travel.

ELIGIBILTY : Applications from performance artists, commercial artists, commercial photographers, filmmakers, crafts persons, and hobbyists are not accepted. Although the need is real and often urgent, Artists' Fellowship is not authorized to respond to such requests.

APPLICATION :
Professional fine artists should submit the following:
1. A completed application
2. A cover letter
3. Slides or other documentation of artwork
4. One copy of the most recent tax return for their household
5. An up-to-date resume, and
6. Supporting materials such as hospital or doctors' reports that substantiate financial need.

Application can be downloaded from the Web site below.
