Artist Sustainers

CERF+'s Artist Sustainers are a group of donors who understand the importance of having a strong safety net for artists and have committed to making regular, recurring donations to CERF+.

Monthly gifts ensure that CERF+ will be at the ready to help artists prepare for and recover following a career-threatening emergency.


"I donate monthly to CERF because I know that artists like myself sometimes need a helping hand when difficulties arise. Giving a little each month allows a small donation to grow into a significant donation over time.

— Eliza Thomas
Artist Sustainer/Ceramic Artist


"I support CERF+ with a regularly scheduled sustaining gift. It feels good. It's easy. It's a great investment in our collective future."

— James Aarons
Artist Sustainer/Ceramic Artist
