Why give to NEFA?

Because of you, we can provide critical resources that support artists and cultural organizations to thrive. Donations to the Rebecca Blunk Fund support artistic creation, connection, and curation through grants that honor the work and life of former executive director Rebecca Blunk.   

Giving is easy!
