New York Foundation for the Arts

Established in 1971 by the New York State Council on the Arts as an independent organization to serve individual artists throughout the state, the mission of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is to empower artists across all disciplines at critical stages in their creative lives. They do this through three main program areas: cash grants and fiscal sponsorship, online resources, and professional development training.
