Thank You!

The Inuit Art Foundation relies on generous contributions from other public bodies, private companies, foundations and individuals to achieve our mission each year. 

You, the generous donors listed below, ensure the Inuit Art Quarterly is published. You also provide funding for artist residencies, such as the Kenojuak Ashevak Memorial Award (KAMA), and other professional development opportunities and support the work of living artists. The IAF relies on the generous support of donors to do this important work and is pleased to recognize donors who have contributed between March 2019 and March 2020. Thank you so much!

The Inuit Art Foundation relies on the generosity of donors like you to develop programming to support the work of Inuit artists.
