The Fund has helped many individuals recover from temporary emergencies and
return to their productive art careers. Additionally, the organization guides artists
in taking proactive steps to minimize exposure to future hardships, while always
respecting the dignity and privacy of those it serves.
Artist Grant Applications
The Fund makes it possible for an artist suffering financial hardship due to major disasters such as floods, mudslides, fire, etc to take the necessary steps toward recovery.
The Fund enables artists, many of whom are not covered by any insurance, to request assistance to cover necessary medical treatments.
The Fund also works to reduce artists’ exposure to unexpected circumstances. Services recently initiated by the Executive Board include counseling, mentoring, scholarships, and a personal assistance program.

Additional funds are raised in the Fall through “Postcards with a Purpose”, a sale of cards created by artists and prominent members of the community; and a theatrical benefit in the Spring “Voices with a Vision”.
Collaborators of “Art-‐to-‐Go” include The City of Laguna Beach, First Thursday’s Art Walk and The Festival of Arts.
