Helping emerging artists thrive

Adjust reading color

We’re on a mission to create better opportunities in the arts, carving a space for marginalized communities and supporting art-focused organizations in making long-term, systemic change.

We believe everyone and anyone can have artistic potential. But when it comes to honing that potential into tangible talent or a sustainable career, the arts have a reputation for being pretty elite. In fact, getting a foot in the door can often feel impossible, especially for people from marginalized backgrounds. That’s where the Supporting Act Foundation comes in. Through a series of specially-tailored programs and grants, we provide a helping hand to emerging artists and community-centered initiatives—ensuring they have the resources they need to create long-term, systemic change.
