Why give to NEFA?

Your gifts to NEFA’s Annual Fund provide the core support necessary to carry out all of our programs and services. Because of you, we can sustain long-running initiatives and launch new projects that serve artists and cultural organizations. Donations to New Work New England support grants to New England artists in dance, film, interdisciplinary work, media, music, musical theater, opera, poetry, storytelling, and theater to support the creation and production of new work that has the potential to engage multiple New England communities. Donations to the Rebecca Blunk Fund support artistic creation, connection, and curation through New Work New England grants that honor the work and life of former executive director Rebecca Blunk.
