A Pilot Program Pairs Lander Artists With Nonprofits for Shared Benefit
A $10,500 grant to Lander Community Foundation on March 21, 2022
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, and supported by a grant from LOR to establish the funding pool, she is launching a program that pairs artists with nonprofits for a mutually beneficial cause. That way worthy causes have beautiful, local work to support fundraising efforts, and artists can still make a living.
