We are funding impactful art projects in Los Angeles with a focus on:
innovative artistic production
The Angeles Art Fund is a giving circle that connects like-minded art patrons through direct engagement with artists, curators and non-profit spaces in Los Angeles and offers financial support to projects that reflect an interest in social justice and thought leadership. Our grantees give artists opportunities to take risks with new ideas or new media, and to provoke a dialogue with the public.
Our events facilitate behind the scenes, intimate access to exhibitions, artists, curators and non-profit art spaces in Los Angeles.

Our goal is to make annual grants to arts non-profits and artist-led projects. The opportunity is rich and unique; to experience the art of our time and engage in philanthropy in a new format. We support impactful arts non-profits in a meaningful way by building new friendships with others and pooling our funds for greater impact.
Funding the Arts
Our events focus on exposing our giving circle members to dynamic partner organizations which the group will consider for a year-end grant. Congrats to our 2018 recipients!

The Angeles Art Fund concept began when Marta Ferro, a Philanthropy Leader asked Art Advisor Victoria Burns to educate a group of clients and friends about the intersection of art and social justice. Ferro invited Jon Foster, CEO of Angeles Wealth Management to join the discussion, and this was the genesis of The Angeles Art Fund: an exclusive, innovative and intellectually challenging philanthropic art experience managed by Marta Ferro and curated by Victoria Burns.
