Our Supporters

NYFA greatly appreciates the many individuals, public agencies, foundations, and corporations that generously support our programs and help us in fulfilling our mission. In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, our supporters are helping to ensure that NYFA can continue to provide the creative community with the resources they need to persevere.

As recent NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellow Ephrat Asherie said, “Being supported by NYFA, an organization that believes in, fights for and nurtures artists, is invaluable.” We thank you for being a part of creating this invaluable experience.
