Artist-Endowed Foundations

Christine Vincent, Vinalhaven resident and subject matter expert, spoke at two of the Star of Hope Foundation’s Community Meetings. She is Project Director of The Aspen Institute Artist-Endowed Foundations Initiative/AEFI. 

Christine shared information about private foundations established by visual artists, known as Artist-Endowed Foundations, describing how they typically operate; the constraints they encounter; and the strict rules and regulations they must follow, particularly in comparison to public charities, the type of nonprofit that is most familiar to the general public. 

The Star of Hope Foundation is an Artist-Endowed Foundation and the Foundation’s Board thanks Christine for sharing her knowledge and expertise on this highly relevant topic.
