Artist Relief Fund in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic
In spring 2020, the Burleigh Society enacted an Artist Relief Fund in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Out of admiration for Harry T. Burleigh’s support of artists during his lifetime, and with serious concern about the impact of the virus on the performing artists, the Society fundraised over $75,000 to offer support artists. The Burleigh Society gave an unrestricted, non-taxable, four-figure grant to each artist who had performed with the Burleigh Society.
“I would just like to say, THANK YOU! The HT Burleigh Foundation came through for me with support when virtually all other relief efforts were closed to me.“
“Thank you again so much for supporting me in these hard, hard times. What a blessing and what a relief The Burleigh Society has provided. I’m so grateful.”
“Thank you for the support. It is truly wonderful to feel and actually receive support from the arts community. Thank you.”
