An Update on The COVID-19 Artist Trust Relief Fund

Since March, Artist Trust has worked to meet the needs of Washington State artists facing financial loss from the COVID-19 crisis, raising and distributing over $650,000 to nearly 400 artists from the COVID-19 Artist Trust Relief Fund. We are grateful to our community, including many artists, who make this important work possible through their generous financial support. All the money donated has now been distributed to artists, and we have paused the COVID-19 Relief Fund. We are actively fundraising to meet the needs of artists who have already applied for the Fund but not yet received support, and we hope to be able to review applications again soon 

The financial fallout from this crisis has not diminished, and a more permanent solution is needed to truly meet artists’ needs. If you are interested in helping us continue this critical relief effort, we want to hear from you. Please get in touch with us at!
