Commitment to Philanthropy

The Art Fund Association’s mission is not only to educate art market professionals and the alternative investment community about the importance of art investment funds, but to foment art education in every form and manifestation. We believe that art education and appreciation should begin at an early age, which is why The Art Fund Association supports children’s art programs around the world via its charitable arm, “Art Funds Give Back”.

art funds give back

Art Funds Give Back acts as a conduit for the aggregation of monies to be allocated amongst a diverse constituency of non-profit organizations providing arts education in communities across the globe. Through the generosity of artists, galleries, dealers and collectors, Art Funds Give Back accepts donations of artworks throughout the year and conducts various silent and live auctions of said works with all proceeds garnered from such sales paid to non-profit entities that have been carefully vetted by a grant evaluation committee. Non-Profits wishing to avail themselves of available grant monies are asked to submit an application and operate in accordance with the high standards of The Art Fund Association.

To find out more about applying for a grant from, or to offer financial or logistical support to, Art Funds Give Back, please e-mail us at

Art Funds Give Back will not make contributions to any non-profit organizations that discriminate illegally by race, creed, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability or national origin. Art Funds Give Back also does not contribute monies to religious organizations to be used for any religious purposes.

Art Funds Give Back has been granted tax exempt status pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of the United States. All donations made to Art Funds Give Back are tax deductible to the maximum extent permitted by law and donations can be made to "Art Funds Give Back, Inc." Art Funds Give Back is a sister organization to The Art Fund Association and solicits charitable contributions independently of The Art Fund Association and makes independent decisions as to whether to support initiatives of The Art Fund Association. Art Funds Give Back shares the charitable goals and charitable investment approach of The Art Fund Association.
