“Like 2020, 2021 has been a difficult year. The pandemic still rages across most of the world and uncertainty surrounds us. Nonetheless, our love for one another will continue to lift us as we usher in brighter days. In the New Year, let’s keep believing in and supporting each other as we strive to make ours a more just, loving, and beautiful world.”

Before the end of the year, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Plan(T)Cortada’s New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) fiscally sponsered Artist Project.

Plan(T) is an initiative that catalyzes climate action – neighbor by neighbor, block by block. Through the project, Miami-Dade County residents discover their vulnerability to sea level rise vis-à-vis their home’s elevation above sea level and are encouraged to help their community plan and plant for the future.

NYFA’s Fiscal Sponsorship program supports artists across all disciplines by providing the tools to help them develop creative projects, build organizations, and craft sustainable careers.
