Artists' Tool Fund Donation


New tools can help artists to become more efficient at their craft, perfect their technique, or apply their talents to new mediums.

Contributions to the Artists' Tool Fund will be used to purchase much-needed tools for Haida & northwest coast Indigenous artists. 

Our current focus is tools for women artists. Art by women artists is traditionally under-recognized and underpriced. By providing tools to women artists our goal is to help support them to be the best in their art & reach new levels of success & recognition.
