Support NYFA

“While their file says that I used the no-strings attached money from NYFA to finish editing She's Gotta Have It, it makes no mention of the recognition I felt at that crucial point in my career — recognition that I was a filmmaker, that I had something important to say. I can't begin to describe how much that meant to me as a young artist.”

— Spike Lee (Fellow in Film, '85)

Connecting Inspiration to Art

The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) provides the concrete resources that working artists and emerging arts organizations need to thrive. For over 40 years, NYFA has furnished artists with crucial support through grants, access to additional funding sources, information resources, and professional development training. By joining us, you’ll help sustain the global cultural community.

As NYFA is primarily supported by grants and contributions, your tax-deductible gift allows us to continue fulfilling the mission we have kept since 1971: to empower artists and arts organizations from around the world at critical stages in their development. Your gift is vital to the funding of our programs, awards, and services.
