Your contributions champion at-risk artists.

Artistic Freedom Initiative’s unwavering commitment to champion at-risk artists and safeguard artistic freedom is more vital than ever. But we can’t do this work alone. AFI relies on the generous financial support and partnership of those committed to protecting human rights and the arts. Private contributions from foundations and individuals sustain our work, and ensure that we can continue to fulfill our mission.

In response to the pandemic, the SDK Foundation for Human Dignity has committed to matching all donations made to AFI in 2023, dollar for dollar up to $100k. Please consider making a gift while it goes twice as far.

Take action in support of artistic freedom by donating today.

We are grateful to our generous institutional donors, including:

Artistic Freedom Initiative’s programming is made made possible by: the SDK Foundation for Human Dignity,  the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Mellon Foundation, the American Muslim Fund, the Ford Foundation, the David Rockefeller Fund, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the MOSAIC Network and Fund, the Darby Foundation, the Wilhelm Family Foundation, and the DJ McManus Foundation.
