ARTISTS ELEVATED

An endowment campaign to uplift individual artists through investment in the GCAC Community Fund at the Columbus Foundation

You can influence individual artists' lives, and the life of our community, through investment.

The GCAC Community Fund, our endowment, which resides at The Columbus Foundation, is established with over $880,000 invested since 2014. We aren’t stopping there. Our goal is to reach a total of $2 million for the endowment by the end of 2021.

This is part of our long-term plan to diversify funding streams to sustain our work and the work of individual artists who play a critical role in our society and economy. If artists are to provide their services for the improvement of social and economic development, they must be compensated and afforded the freedom to think, work and act on their creative insights.

The most valuable means of recognizing individual artists is by investing in their creativity and artistic vision. This fund will not only provide direct support over time to uplift artists, but also the community. From social justice to corporate partnerships, individual artists stimulate conversation and encourage cultural exchange. By supporting individual artists, you are directly empowering our community, our economy and our culture.
