Introducing the Springboard Fund

Money goes in. Art comes out.



Give to CounterPulse and you support these springboard opportunities for artists:


✔️ Residencies & commissions

✔️ Co-production opportunity

✔️ Fiscal sponsorship

✔️ National & international exchange


What do we mean by springboard?

Artists at all points in their careers hit roadblocks – creative, logistical, financial, you name it.

Here is where community makes the difference. If CounterPulse is a springboard, your support gives us bounce. Together, we’re working to make it easier for artists to live and work in San Francisco. By providing critical space, services, and direct financial support for artists we launch ideas and careers. With a community they can count on when the going gets tough, artists take more risks and break new ground. When that happens, our arts ecology thrives.

Be the bounce. Support the springboard. Watch art take off.
