Galleries, museums, concert halls, events, and many artistic venues across the region were the first to close down because of COVID-19 and will be the last to reopen. Entire seasons and exhibitions and summer and fall festivals continue to be postponed and canceled.
The COVID-19 Arts Impact Fund was created by CNY Arts to provide COVID-19 emergency assistance for artists and cultural groups. CNY Arts serves Cayuga, Cortland, Herkimer, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga, and Oswego Counties.
Donate TODAY and your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Central New York Community Foundation up to $100,000.
How can you contribute to The Fund? Gifts of all types (check, stocks, securities, etc.) can be restricted to a specific county, discipline, or other use within the Impact Fund.
