COVID-19 Update: NYGIA is convening regular calls for local arts funders and sharing information over an email listserv. Interested arts funders should contact NYGIA Co-Chairs to inquire about joining the network.
New York Grantmakers in the Arts (NYGIA) is a peer network of grantmakers who fund arts-related organizations and programming in the New York metro area. NYGIA is a member-driven group that aims to provide information, resources and networking opportunities for funders to invest strategically in growing and sustaining a strong, vibrant and equitable cultural sector in New York City. In order to do this, we support our members by providing:
- Panel and roundtable discussions that explore special topics in the field and address timely and critical needs;
- Group trips to nonprofit arts organizations to foster collective learning among funders; and
- Other gatherings to encourage exchange, peer mentorship and collaboration
NYGIA also has a listserv for its members and invites its members to use it as a tool to better communicate within its own membership and with other working groups.
Please note: Recent monthly call topics include arts and disability funding; AAPI funding trends in arts; and supporting NYC arts and culture reopening. Meeting invitations and call notes are available to listserv members. Please contact NYGIA co-chairs to inquire about joining the network:
