Support Artists

Show your support for
art at its source

Your contributions make it possible for Artist Trust to support art at its source — the artists who create the paintings and sculptures, plays and dances, music, films and novels that enrich our lives. Most cultural philanthropy goes to institutions that present artists' work; Artist Trust is one of the few organizations in the U.S. that supports artists directly. Economic impact studies show that artists contribute to both cultural and economic vitality. Artist Trust’s programs ensure that Washington artists at all stages of their careers not only survive, but thrive.

If you believe as we do that art is an essential element in our lives, please show your support today!
