Impact of ArtsFairfax Grants

For over 50 years, ArtsFairfax’s commitment to the arts has been a constant in times of struggle and celebrations of success. Today, our arts community faces challenges like we have never experienced before. The COVID-19 crisis shows us that the arts are more important than ever in healing our hearts and minds and providing comfort and joy to the Fairfax community.

ArtsFairfax has awarded grants to address the COVID-19 crisis and provided safety net funding for artists and arts organizations facing unprecedented challenges.

ArtsFairfax invites you to read success stories from our grant recipients and encourages you to support the arts in your community.
