Our Programs Depend on Your Gift
Working Artists already have a job. They aren't looking for a handout. But to become self-sustaining, thriving artists that fill the world with art and fortify our economy with lifelong careers, they need BUSINESS training. YOU can launch a dozen businesses.

Business Accelerator Program Fellows
“After several workshops, I have realized that I am learning a much broader spectrum about the business aspects of being a professional artist.”
“CHF’s Business Accelerator Program has given me the opportunity to review, evaluate, and develop my art business through different channels, from business strategy, marketing, sales, legal, to financial planning.”
“Feedback from the artist is included in the program so that future sessions are actually built around the questions that the artists have, which make the sessions very relevant to the artist; they certainly have been relevant to me.”
“I was able “to expand into the Tri-State area, not just locally… but to begin to broaden my horizons as an artist and to reach a new audience.”
“I was able to have my work professionally framed for exhibition, creating a long-term value that benefits the work and my practice.”
“I was able to purchase the quality and quantity of materials that allowed me to push my studio practice to a level that continues to challenge me.”
