Residency Requirement: Spokane, Washington

Funding: Up to $500

The goal is to crowdsource funding that will be distributed *directly* to individual creatives.

All disciplines and types of artists/creatives that need support during this time can fill out a basic online form (URL below), which asks a basic series of questions about how you are being affected by COVID-19 and what support is necessary. Spokane Arts is a 501c3 nonprofit organization supporting arts and culture in the Spokane region through grantmaking, arts programming, professional development, and advocacy. This fundraiser is specifically to distribute emergency funds to local creatives who desperately need support and resources to survive this unprecedented situation.

Please note that receiving a distribution from this emergency fund *will in no way affect* any individual’s eligibility for future SAGA grants. They are completely separate funding sources. The hope for this emergency fund is to help keep individual creatives afloat in the immediate short-term. Spokane Arts is also exploring every avenue available to secure resources to help support collectives, organizations, and creative businesses, who also need all of our support in this difficult time. We’ll post updates on those efforts via Spokane Arts’ social media, newsletter, and website. Together, we will get through this. Thank you for your support.
