Launched last fall by the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), Artspire.org is a new community website that empowers individual artists and organizations anywhere in the country to support their work with tax-deductiblecontributions while building entrepreneurship and creating a robust social network of supporters.
With Artspire, artists can leverage the power of crowdsourced funding to galvanize and expand their roster of followers, thus building sustained financial backing for their work.
Artists connecting with Artspire will find a virtual home that combines innovative technology with hands-on personal support to provide a critical suite of resources and services that are easily accessible throughout the fundraising process.
“Artspire is one of NYFA’s most important digital initiatives and the most significant change in the program’s history,” said Royce. “By giving artists the tools they need to expand their audience and find new funding sources, the site positions them to fully actualize their entrepreneurial potential and enables them to create an inter-connected online community that is invested in their long term success.”
