The Ridgewood Arts Foundation was founded by residents of the Village of Ridgewood, New Jersey, who see the need for a foundation to provide funding for the many worthy artistic endeavors within and near the Village of Ridgewood, New Jersey, and to encourage the further development of the arts within this community.  We are a New Jersey non-profit corporation, non-member, with 501(c)(3) status from the Internal Revenue Service. As such it is a private charitable foundation. 

We invite you to join us in this effort and to have fun while doing so, recognizing that art so enhances the quality of life and brings such pleasure to participants and spectators alike.

It is hoped that while the Foundation in the near term will make modest gifts to worthy applicants, the funding will advance to the point where gifts become more substantial, even to the point of assisting in the development of a facility in Ridgewood dedicated to artistic displays and performances.

Funding will be provided through donations to the Foundation.  Fund raising activities will be designed to promote the arts while encouraging donations to enable the Foundation to advance its work.
