In our latest update on how brands are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re sharing details from Tiffany & Co., Roxanne Assoulin, Balmain, and more.

An Artist Relief fund has been established by an alliance of arts supporters and grant makers including Academy of American Poets, Artadia, Creative Capital, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, MAP Fund, National YoungArts Foundation, and United States Artists. The relief program launched with $10M—including $5M provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation—and provides $5,000 grants to aid creatives in financial stress due to the COVID-19. Alongside the fund, Americans for the Arts has designed the COVID-19 Impact Survey for Artists and Creative Workers, which will help pinpoint the needs of artists moving forward.

Each Montfermeil and Delafontaine hospital will receive over $400K to purchase necessary medical equipment like respirators, blood collection kits, and masks, and more than $100K will support the medical staff working the frontlines of the virus.
