About the AITAF Action Fund

The AITAF Action Fund is a newly created strategic reserve to provide arts and dialogue to the military community, particularly in a swift response to a disruptive event on base. We all can attest to the fact that in times of crisis, people lean into the arts; artists entertain us, comfort us, and offer an opportunity to consider and discuss our common humanity. 

By contributing to the Action Fund, you can be a part of providing these morale-boosting, community-building artistic experiences to the military and veteran community where and when they are needed most. 

It's a match!

The best part? EVERY GIFT up to $100,000 will be matched dollar for dollar by Craig Newmark Philanthropies between now and Labor Day, 2020. Double your impact!

Give an honor or tribute

Want to name your gift in honor of or in memory of a loved one? All donors of $50 and up will be listed on the Virtual Donor Wall in the manner they choose.

Share your story/gift!
