The net proceeds from We are Family: Pinellas County Virtual Festival of the Arts are contributed to the Pinellas Arts Community Relief Fund, a component fund of Pinellas Community Foundation.
The fund provides immediate financial relief to artists, arts organizations and creative businesses. The Arts Community Relief Fund was started by a partnership between Creative Pinellas, the Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg, the Pinellas Community Foundation and the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance. The partnership is looking to this festival to help replenish the fund so that more grants can be given to address the continuing need in the arts community and help ensure that the vibrant arts and cultural landscape of Pinellas County remains intact through this current crisis and beyond.
