Our Mission

The San Francisco Art/s Foundation, SFASF,  is a 501 (c) (3) private foundation dedicated to attracting and supporting Artists by providing stipends and other forms of financial assistance which mitigates the high costs of living and working in the Bay Area.  SFASF will provide financial, mentoring and collaborative support to Bay Area artists who want to remain in the Bay Area and financial assistance to emerging and established artists who are amenable to relocating their art practice to the Bay Area.  SFASF’s long term objective is to enhance the vibrant, collaborative and energized San Francisco fine arts scene by financially supporting artists who will stimulate innovation, creative disruption, and engage in artistic risk taking as working artists in San Francisco.
