Our Goal: 1000 Donors Strong

StateraArts is moving mountains. In our first four years we have:

  • Hosted 3 national conferences

  • Launched 12 Mentorship Chapters nationwide, with 10 in development for 2020

  • Matched over 450 mentors and mentees

  • Hosted International SWAN Day 2019 with events in 36 countries

  • Awarded $8,650 in support grants for women artists

  • Hosted a living resource directory

Most of our work for gender parity and equity in the arts is done through volunteer hours, innovative grassroots movement, and sheer will. But its also achieved by individual donations big and small.

We’re thrilled that Martha Richards of WomenArts has come forward with a $25,000 matching gift as part of our mid-year giving campaign. This is an enormous opportunity for StateraArts to renew our dynamic programming, dig deeper, and continue providing pathways forward for women* in the arts. We need your help now.

The StateraArts community is a force of nature, consisting of thousands of artists and arts leaders nationwide. Whether you're donating because of our national mentorship program, our incredible conferences, our free resource directory, our membership program, our workshops on radical inclusion, our curated industry information on social media, International SWAN Day, or our advocacy work for equal pay and access for women and non-binary artists, your donation will be matched, dollar for dollar!

If 1,000 people donate $25 each by August 15th, we'll easily meet our goal!
Whatever your reason, now is the time to contribute at

Women: Statera recognizes the limiting nature of the binary use of woman. We serve and welcome anyone on the gender spectrum who identifies either always or some of the time as a woman. We also serve and welcome those who identify as non-binary. 

Intersectionality: StateraArts works through an intersectional lens for gender parity. We understand and acknowledge that systems of oppression and discrimination are interdependent and span all social categorizations such as race, class, gender, ability, religion, parental status, size, age, and sexual orientation as they apply to a given individual or group. Addressing one spoke of systematic discrimination or disadvantage means holistically addressing them all.
