BENEFITING: Artists Financial Support Group Inc
EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2016
Welcome to the Artists Financial Support Group's 2016 Fall Fundraiser! We're so happy to have you here. The AFSG has had a banner year, and we're poised for some major developments. But, we need YOUR HELP! We're raising funds to continue our mission of cultivating Financial Self-Advocacy in artists of all disciplines. Our goal is to raise $5,000 by October 31st, 2016.
If this is your first time learning about us, or you need a refresher, the Artists Financial Support Group seeks to: 1) Educate student and professional artists on financial self-advocacy 2) Advocate legislative and institutional change in the cost of artist education and 3) Innovate new ways to manage student loan debt and to budget on an erratic income.
The AFSG brings a number of vital initiatives for arts communities.
Our signature workshop, the Student Loan & Budgeting workshop has been given at many universities and organizations, such as: The Actors Fund, Big Sky Theater Workshop, Christopher Newport University, CSU Long Beach, CUE Arts Foundation, Gallery 400 at the University of Illinois - Chicago, HB Studios, The Juilliard School, The New School (upcoming), NYU Grad Acting, NYU Grad Design, NYU Tisch Office of Career Development, SAG-AFTRA Foundation, SUNY Purchase, and the Yale School of Drama. Your donation could help bring our workshop to an arts institution near you!
Other initiatives include our Taxes for the Artist workshop, and our open Support Group hosted by The Actors Fund.
For those artists not able to experience our workshops and events in person, we offer our free podcast, and our recently published book "Repaid: An Artist's Guide to Student Loans and Financial Self-Advocacy," now available on Amazon.
By donating, you'll help underwrite our day to day operating expenses, such as: website and podcast hosting, book publishing and advertising, educator fees, travel expenses for workshops and events, and much more.
