The Fire Island Artist Residency is a nonprofit 501c3 organization that is run entirely with the generous donations from supporters like you.



$25 - $50 provides the resources necessary to keep our office running for a month!

$500 - $1,000 A donation at this level makes it possible for FIAR to expand and and make much needed upgrades the studios we provide for our residents, giving them the resources needed to create even more ambitious works.

$1,000 - 2,500 Pays for all of our public programming for up to a year, such as projects with partners like Leslie Lohman Museum and Visual AIDS, as well as artist lectures and community events in New York and on Fire Island.

$5,000 A donation at this level covers all expenses for one of our residents for the season. This is an incredible gift to us as it KEEPS FIAR FREE to our residents – most of whom would not be able to participate otherwise. 

FIAR expresses much appreciation to Sikkema Jenkis Co. and Rod J Sayegh for their generous support of our program.
