What started as a personal commitment to make a daily donation to artists as a small way to give back to the creative community, Brisa Trinchero, Princess Grace Foundation-USA’s CEO created #gratitudeandtonic. Thankfully, good ideas grow and soon she was joined by other generous friends and they begin giving away hundreds of dollars a day – putting funds directly into the hands of the artists/musicians/entertainers bringing joy with their artistic endeavors during the time of Covid-19. Now, the Princess Grace Foundation – USA is joining the cause!

 

 

HOW IT WORKS: Each week an Artist Curator is selected to give away that week’s #gratitudeandtonic funds to other extraordinary artists in their network who are using their gifts and talents to nourish their communities and who could use support more than ever right now. Going forward, these Artist Curators will be Princess Grace Award winners – allowing them to “Grace it forward”  by choosing one extraordinary artist each day of the week to be the #gratitudeandtonic recipient** and receive that week’s funds to support their artistic endeavors and have their work featured on our social media channels.

 

 

#GRATITUDEANDTONIC FUNDING: The funding for this project comes directly from donors who pledge a daily amount to add to the pool. We hope you will consider joining us in supporting this effort. These funds are not going to the Foundation – 100% of the funds are going directly into the hands of the #gratitudeandtonic recipient.* You can commit to any daily amount for any length of time. Every dollar helps to provide critical support and encouragement to artists who are keeping us sane and smiling during this time.

 

 

Thanks to a generous challenge grant from the Le Vine Family, all donations will be matched up to $7,500! Please click the Donate Button to make a donation in any amount and be sure to include your Instagram handle so that we can acknowledge your support as part of the #gratitudeandtonic funding crew. For questions, please contact Director of Philanthropy, Patricia at pleonard@pgfusa.org.

 

 

*Donations are tax-deductible as per 501(c)(3) guidelines.

**While this is a project of the Princess Grace Foundation-USA, it is not a “Princess Grace Award” and the selected artists are not considered Award winners. It’s simply a way for PGF and our donors to show appreciation to the artists who provide entertainment, beauty, and knowledge through their chosen medium both in this time of quarantine and beyond.
