Helping Artists Pay for Rent, Food, & Medical Care
During the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, the Catholic Artist Connection started an Emergency Fund for artists who lost work due to COVID-19 and needed help paying for rent, food, medical care, or other necessary expenses.
To date, we have distributed over $7,500 to artists in need, and continue raising funds and accepting applications for assistance.
How You Can Help
To donate to the Emergency Fund, simply click the button below (which will take you to PayPal) and type "Emergency Fund" in the "Add a note" field. Your donation will be used ONLY for the Emergency Fund, and is fully tax-deductible due to our status as a 501(c)(3) organization.
It's quick and easy to apply for emergency financial assistance. Simply complete the form below.
There is no religious requirement to receive a grant, and all information will be kept confidential.
Please note that Emergency Fund grants are intended to replace artistic income lost as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and cover essential expenses for artists (such as housing, food, and healthcare costs, as well as professional expenses necessary to maintaining one's career). Please only ask for what you need so that everyone's needs can be supplied. Thank you for maintaining the integrity of the Emergency Fund!
