This Giving Tuesday, Support Artists’ Wildest Dreams

Dear Friends,

Every artist dreams of making wild, new work. This year, we increased our grantmaking from 35 to 50 awards, opened a new grant cycle, enhanced our suite of services, launched Creative Capital Carnival, hosted our inaugural Artist Benefit + Banquet (featured in The New York Times), and best of all—connected with hundreds of groundbreaking artists across the country!

This Giving Tuesday, help us raise $300,000 to provide critical funds for artists. Your gift will be matched for double the impact.

In Fiscal Year 2022, Creative Capital:

  • provided $1.7 million in direct funding to artists via our democratic, national, open-call application; 83% of every dollar directly supported artist grants and programs;
  • increased the number of awards by 43% to fund 50 radical projects; and
  • championed diversity: 90% of 2022 grantees identify as Black, Indigenous, Asian, and Latinx.

Creative Capital artists continue to make waves, from sculptor Simone Leigh, who is the first Black woman to represent the United States at this year’s Venice Biennale; to filmmaker Laura Poitras, whose riveting documentary on Nan Goldin’s campaign against the Sackler family won a Golden Lion award; and jazz luminary Etienne Charles, whose new commission and performance San Juan Hill: A New York Story opened the new David Geffen Hall in October, and pays homage to the neighborhood that was razed to make way for Lincoln Center.

Thank you for making a tax-deductible gift in support of artists!

Wishing you peace, joy, and an inspiring holiday season,

Christine Kuan
President & Executive Director
