Spokane Artists & Creatives Fund
We're raising money to benefit local individual creatives during this difficult time. Every penny donated to this fundraiser, after the fees taken out automatically by the platform, will be distributed directly to local professional artists and creatives. The goal of this fundraiser is to crowdsource funding that will be distributed *directly* to individual creatives. *Please note that if you'd prefer to donate directly to specific artists, we highly encourage you to do so! Some have individual Patreon accounts, donation pages on their websites, etc.* Since not everyone has those tools set up, the hope for this fund is to pierce the wider community consciousness to articulate the need and create an outlet for those who want to support artists but don't know how.
