In these tumultuous times, we hold dear the people and the values we cherish. I know that I have found my involvement with FAN comforting and positive. I think of you, our members, and our mission and it gives me heart and a concrete way to be proactive. I hope you feel that way too. Our program committee is working on opportunities for us to be together and learning and sharing. Next week, we will have news on how we can be involved. Read more.
We are proud to announce that the FAN Board of Directors voted unanimously to distribute all award funds for the 2020/2021 grant cycle—$270,000— to the grantees in order to support them NOW as they deal with this terrible crisis. FAN’s prompt action is aligned with major funders of the arts all over the country who are rushing to provide support to shuttered arts organizations and struggling artists. Congratulations to the 2020-2021 Grantees
The Funding Arts Network has partnered with The Miami Foundation to support local arts and culture nonprofits in our community most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The source of the $10,000 commitment is the amount that FAN’s founding president, Deborah Hoffman, received from Knight Foundation as a cash award accompanying naming her a Knight Community Champion in 2018. As the region’s largest community foundation, The Miami Foundation established a Community Recovery Fund in an effort to provide critical assistance to Miami-Dade nonprofits. FAN will work with the Foundation to identify arts organizations to receive an investment of $10,000. The organizations that will be considered for grants will be past FAN grantees.
