SPONSOR A FELLOW
Artists, their art, their process, and the organizations they create and support play a unique role in witnessing, demonstrating, and providing inspiration to resolve societal inequity and injustice. We at NACF believe that this is vital to a healthy and democratic society.
2018 Artist Sponsorship Opportunities
- Mentor Artist Fellows – Ensure your state will host a Mentor and Apprentice artist; sponsorship begins at $30,000.
- National Artist Fellows – Ensure an artist, of the discipline or state of your choosing, can advance their career through an NACF Fellowship; sponsorship begins at $10,000. A full contribution of $40,000 underwrites one full Fellowship award, including a grant to an artist named in your honor, their travel to and participation in NACF’s annual Artists Convening, and program administration.
SPONSOR A PROGRAM
Community Inspiration Program projects, Native Nations initiatives, and our various Advocacy projects provide critically needed funds and representation of Native voices within the national arts and culture sector. By dedicating a gift to a specific program, or offering general operations support to the organization as a whole, you or your organization join NACF in proclaiming the value and need for contemporary Native perspectives in the face of historic and ongoing cultural inequity.
A contribution of $15,000 to NACF or a specific program ensures your recognition as a key sponsor.
SPONSOR AN EVENT
NACF hosts a variety of special events throughout the United States, many of which provide high-profile opportunities to engage diverse audiences.

Donated or reduced fees on venue space, transportation, lodging, etc. go a long way towards helping us direct our dollars to artists. We especially encourage Native-owned businesses to contact us about opportunities to support and promote Native arts and cultures on a regional or national level.
