The first $50,000 in new and increased donations will be matched dollar for dollar by an anonymous donor family.

Sponsor an Artist

Sponsorships cover first-time Market artists’ international airfare to Santa Fe, local airport shuttle, lodging, meals, and IFAM’s Mentor to Market artist entrepreneurship education programs to fully attend, benefit, and enjoy IFAM Santa Fe on July 12-14, 2019. Your sponsorship will empower and change the lives of artists who are ready to enter onto a global stage.

Last year, first-time Market artists earned an average over $14,800 in 22 hours taking home 90% of their sales. Artists report that with the earnings from IFAM Santa Fe they have been able to purchase land, build new studios, run health clinics, hire teachers, fund schools, pay for school fees and books for their children, and so much more to create positive social change in their communities.

With your help, IFAM will be able to provide direct financial support for first-time Market artists who would not be able to attend otherwise.

Gifts of every size make a difference! For gifts $100 and above you will receive special benefits and tickets to IFAM Santa Fe on July 12-14, 2019. For gifts of $1,000 and above, your name will be listed in the artist’s booth of your choice for this year’s Market.

The following Market artist bios displays the 2019 cohort of first-time Market artists who will receive philanthropic assistance to participate in IFAM Santa Fe on July 12-14, 2019.

Double your impact with this year’s matching opportunity and know that you are supporting an artists’ transformative experience to IFAM Santa Fe. Partner with us!

We thank you on behalf of the artists that will benefit from your generosity!
