A Pilot Program Pairs Lander Artists With Nonprofits for Shared Benefit

  • Local Champion: Lander Community Foundation
  • Date Funded: March 21, 2022
  • Grant Amount: $10,500

Lander artists are often asked to donate their work and time to nonprofits ahead of fundraisers, auctions, and other events that support the community. And while many artists are happy to discount their work for such events, they also need to earn a living to sustain the local creative economy. After noticing this recurring problem, a Lander nonprofit veteran proposed solving it by creating a pool of funds from which nonprofits can pay artists. Working closely with the Lander Community Foundation, she is launching a program that pairs artists with nonprofits for a mutually beneficial cause. LOR’s funding helped to establish the funding pool. That way worthy causes have beautiful, local work to support fundraising efforts, and artists can still make a living.

This project is fiscally sponsored by the Lander Community Foundation
