The Foundation has just reopened the application to our Emergency Grants for individual artists, which provides grants of up to $6,000 to US-based visual artists who have been impacted by a natural or man-made disaster affecting a region on a broad scale. The Emergency Grant is intended to help reestablish their studio practice. We accept applications on a rolling basis and will consider requests for up to three years following such an event. For more information and the link to our application, please visit https://joanmitchellfoundation.org/arti ... /emergency.

We are currently working to get the word out about this grant, particularly to artists in regions affected by Hurricanes Florence, Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Michael; California wildfires; or other events of this nature or scale. I hope that you will share any thoughts or suggestions you may have about other organizations that have been active in emergency/disaster funding for artists and whose artist community could benefit from this information.

It’s my pleasure to share with you the attached flier, which we hope you will share with your constituents. There is also a standalone graphic that can be used in newsletters or web listings, if you list emergency/disaster relief funding sources. For social media, we have some examples of text below; if you already have information about us in a resource page or document, you can use this language there as we have updated it this year.

Sample post for Facebook, Instagram, newsletter, or website listing:
The Joan Mitchell Foundation provides emergency support to US-based visual artists who have suffered significant losses after natural or man-made disasters affecting a region on a broad scale. The Foundation is currently accepting applications from US visual artists affected by Hurricanes Florence, Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Michael; California wildfires; or other events of this nature or scale. Artists can apply to the Foundation for funding for up to three years after such an event. For guidelines and to access the online application, visit: https://joanmitchellfoundation.org/arti ... /emergency.

[Please include the attached graphic as appropriate. For Instagram, you can use the link: bit.ly/jmfemergency and tag @joanmitchellfdn. Feel free to be specific about the disaster your audience is likely to have been affected by rather than including the whole list if you feel that is appropriate.]

Sample Twitter post:
