Annual Fund Donating to the Annual Fund is a great way to provide support to A.I.R.. This funding goes directly toward administrative costs and program support. It’s what helps us pay the artists, curators and writers we work with and maintain a small but effective staff.

The Emma Bee Bernstein Fellowship Fund Each year, A.I.R. Gallery’s Fellowship Program supports the burgeoning career of six emerging and underrepresented women artists. In 2009, A.I.R. named one yearly Fellowship seat in memory of the artist, activist, writer, and feminist Emma Bee Bernstein (1985-2008). In recognition of Emma’s significant contributions as a young artist, the youngest A.I.R. Fellowship recipient receives the honor of holding the Emma Bee Bernstein Fellowship. Each fellowship seat costs $14,000 a year and is only partially funded by government grants. Your individual contribution to the A.I.R. Emma Bee Bernstein Fellowship Fund makes a significant impact on the continuation of this program. Learn more about the Emma Bee Bernstein Fellowship Fund here.

BequestsA bequest in your will is the simplest and most popular type of planned gift. This type of unrestricted gift allows A.I.R. Board of Directors to use the gift where it is needed most, or the gift can be applied to a specific purpose. These planned gifts ensure A.I.R. Gallery’s future as we provide continued support to women in the arts.
