NAFI’s Arts Initiative Fund

NAFI created the Arts Initiative Fund to support and encourage artistic projects within our agency programming. As the vast majority of our programs are state-funded contracts, there is typically no room within our budgets to afford enrichment programming. The Arts Initiative is a grant-based program where projects are designed within individual programs and are able to grow from inception to reality through a NAFI-sponsored Arts Initiative grant award. 100% of proceeds go directly back to youth and families for supporting programming to expose individuals to opportunities within the Arts. Prior funding has been appropriated to:
  • Cultural Enrichment Opportunities
  • Community Centered Art Projects
  • Family Art Celebrations
  • Music and Dance Education and Performances
  • Other Unfunded Artistic Needs

If you wish to provide support funding for teenage girls, boys, or families or adults, your contributions can be directly utilized by a specific program or event. NAFI New York hosts events for all consumers on a regular basis and is thankful for any and all community support. Please email for more information.
