Founded in 1999, the Creative Capital Foundation ( ) is a national nonprofit organization that supports artists pursuing adventurous and imaginative work in the performing and visual arts, film/video, innovative literature, and emerging fields. The foundation is committed to working in long-term partnership with the artists it funds, making a multiyear financial commitment, and providing advisory services and professional development assistance along with financial support.
