About The Santo Foundation

The Santo Foundation was established in 2009 to recognize and assist the careers of individual artists and to champion the value of the visual artist in our world.


Our mission is two-fold:


  • To provide assistance directly to artists in the form of individual monetary awards, travel stipends, exhibitions and speaker honorariums. We increase the sustainability of artists further by providing subsidized workspace.


  • To empower and provide youth and emerging artists with the vital opportunity and access to arts education and the tools necessary to achieve their own success.

We serve our mission through three key programs: The Santo Foundation Individual Artist Awards (grant program), Santo Projects and Victor Projects. 

The challenges facing contemporary visual artists and the power of creativity are significant and their success and sustainability remains vital to our cultural heritage.
