We Want to Help
We provide short-term financial assistance to professional visual artists living in Yukon who are in acute need because of serious health or family issues. An artist’s career can lead to difficulties and hardships which are often not helped with a social safety net.
A carefully selected review committee considers the need of each applicant and the committee selects applicants for financial assistance based on their individual needs.
If you need relief, please reach out for help with mental health, physical health, or life gone harshly sideways, and we will try to help. We will provide "bridge financing" so that you can have the time you need to find other help or to change your situation. We do our best to respond to your request within just a few days.
Grants are generally in the range of $1,000 however larger grants have been given due to the circumstances of the tragedy. Grants are for visual artists themselves but may apply to their immediate family.
Please know that we are strict about confidentiality. We will never reveal anything about your circumstances or your request for assistance.
