With the outbreak of COVID-19 and limits on large gatherings, individual artists across the country have seen their livelihoods disappear. In most cases, this artistic income is not eligible for state and federal unemployment relief. To support our artists and meet the unmet need, Pikes Peak Community Foundation and the Bee Vradenburg Foundation partnered to create the Artist Recovery Fund. The Artist Recovery Fund is designed to provide emergency support for individual artists and creative professionals in the Pikes Peak region.
Applications for artist recovery grants are being accepted on a continuous basis for immediate and essential expenses. The Fund will provide cash relief for urgent expenses like shelter, food and transportation.
We invite you to make a financial contribution to the Artist Recovery Fund. All donations are tax deductible and 100% of contributions to the fund will be directed to support local artists in need.
