As a person who loves art, the power to strengthen and protect artists today, tomorrow, and beyond is in your hands.

A Gift Today Will Support
The Artists of Tomorrow

Whether an artist needs to upgrade their studio or needs help rebuilding and recovering from a devastating emergency, CERF+ is there for them. The support we receive from our generous community of donors makes our work possible and ensures that we are able to respond quickly and effectively when disaster strikes. Please join us in this important work by making a gift today.

Donations to CERF+ are a powerful way to provide direct support to artists in their moment of greatest need and get them back on their feet after an emergency. Pursuing a career as an artist is difficult, and too often temporary setbacks can derail even the most established career. Fortunately, because of you, CERF+ remains at the ready to help artists strengthen and sustain their careers.

Artists will always need a safety net, and with your help, CERF+ will be there.

Why I Give to CERF+

“I have supported CERF+ for more than thirty years. It is my way of giving back to a peer community that has done so much for so many, including myself. We are all in the same boat, and I always feel blessed knowing that my gift will help someone whose boat is sinking, or worse yet, has capsized. Please join me in making a gift today. Your contribution will make a real difference in the lives of so many artists and help them keep their heads above water in their moments of greatest need.”

– Martha Giberson, Glass Artist, Former Board Member, Donor

 “I don’t know if I will ever need their helping hand, but if I do, I feel certain CERF+ will reach out to keep the rootstalk of my business going in the face of a crisis or calamity. I also know for certain that CERF+ would reach out even if I’d never made a contribution to their fund. It’s the way CERF+ is. But I do give by way of a scheduled quarterly gift. It feels good. It’s easy. It’s a great investment in our collective future.”

– James Aarons, Ceramic Artist and Sustaining Donor
