Support the David Fraher Fund for Innovation

Please join us in supporting the David Fraher Fund for Innovation, an exciting new fund established within Arts Midwest to explore new ideas, programs, and special projects that ensure the Midwest continues to be a place where arts and culture thrive well into the coming decades.

What is the Fund for Innovation?

We like to think of this new fund as a source of courage funding for Midwestern creativity.

In accordance with its founding guidelines, this fund and its earnings will never be allocated to cover general operating costs or budgets shortfalls. Instead, our goal is to continue to grow the fund, while also providing our team, our partners, and our communities seed funding to source, test, and share new ideas that support creativity in the Midwest.

The use of this funding will be collaborative and experimental, it will be rooted in our organizational motto, “be curious,” and it will focus on ideas that advance our values. It’s a way to honor David Fraher’s 35-year legacy of leadership as well as welcome our new President & CEO, Torrie Allen, with the energy and resources to launch us into our next chapter.
