Clare Rose Foundation (CRF) was featured in today’s Wealth Matters column in The New York Times, highlighting one of their COVID responses — direct micro-grants to Teaching Artists.
These grants to individuals were one initiative in the multi-prong strategy CRF employed to address the needs that emerged in the earliest weeks of the pandemic.
Other activities included:
- Increased general operating funds to current CYD grantees
- Technical Assistance to help organizations move programming online
- Multiple weekly convenings for partners to build a community of support and peer learning
- Joining with other Funders in the community to create a pooled fund to support arts small organizations and artists
