April is Financial Literacy Month

It's a great time to establish & maintain healthy financial habits

Talking about financial security may seem like an unlikely topic,  as the very thought of financial security seems quite elusive.

However, this is a great time to learn strategies and make new goals, to set you up for success in the future.

We will be having some informative webinars in the following weeks, as well as starting a new artist relief fund, for those affected by the current crisis. 

Read on for more information.

Fill the Void: Artist Relief Funding Campaign


In an effort to support local artists who’ve lost work during the coronavirus pandemic, the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville has created the THE FUND FOR ARTS AND CULTURE​. The Fund will raise support through individual donations and in partnership with social entrepreneurs, corporations, and local businesses. 

The first initiative for the fund, Fill the Void: Artist Relief Funding Campaign, was generously sponsored by Void Magazine and locally-based clothing brand Strata, which helped seed the Fund through sales of a limited-edition "Void This Virus" T-shirt.

The fund will provide funds up to $250, directly to Duval County-based artists of all disciplines whose livelihoods in the arts have been negatively impacted by the crisis. 

The fund will continue to accept donations to support artists in the community.
