This newsletter has info about giving money, learning about money and a new way for artists to get their work seen by more people - as a way to make money!

The Fund For Arts and Culture

The Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville is wrapping up the first campaign of THE FUND FOR ARTS AND CULTURE, created to support local artists who’ve lost work during the coronavirus pandemic. Through individual donations and the Cultural Council's collaboration with Void Magazine and Strata Mfg., who generously donated the proceeds of their Void This Virus t-shirt, we are off to a great start through the Fill the Void: Artist Relief Funding Campaign. 

With over 20 applications submitted so far, we realize the need is great in the artist community during this crisis. The Coronavirus pandemic represents a sudden, unanticipated work stoppage for many individual artists. The Fill the Void: Artist Relief Funding Campaign will provide funds directly to Duval County-based artists of all disciplines whose livelihoods in the arts have been negatively impacted by the crisis.

We need your help to be able to fund all the applicants.  Several donors contributing small amounts can add up to make a difference in someone's situation.

Talking about financial security may seem like an unlikely topic, right now. However, this is a great time to learn strategies and make new goals, to set you up for success in the future.
