The arts play a critical role in our health of connection to community. There are many ways to activate the art you collect to bring about good in the community. To cite one example, Agnes Gund sold a valuable painting to benefit a Criminal Justice Fund.  You do not have to be a wealthy collector to enact change!  Let us help you explore how to use your visual assets to align with your other philanthropic passions!
