How It Works

Managed by the North Shore Community Foundation, the Fund receives donations, bequests and other funds from arts supporters in our community, which all go toward the building of the Fund’s capital account which has a current balance of $92,000.  As a registered charity, FANS Society issues tax deductible receipts for such donations. Interest earned on the Fund is disbursed back to the FANS Society, which in turn provides grants to eligible North Shore artists. In this way, the contribution continues to work for artists year after year.

Purpose (as written in the Constitution)

To increase the public’s understanding and appreciation of the arts through a program recognizing the artistic contributions and accomplishments of individual North Shore artists who have demonstrated a maturity of talent.   To undertake activities that are ancillary and incidental to the purpose.
