“A small group of prominent artists and art professionals started EASL in 1992 to raise money for artists needing dire emergency funds in the North Texas region. Partnering with Communities Foundation of Texas allowed us to concentrate on fundraising and artists’ needs while CFT handled the process of grant making. Twenty-four years later and hundreds of thousands of dollars raised and granted to help artists, EASL is alive, well, and is still true to its original mission. I am very proud to be part of EASL.“

“It is a pleasure and a privilege to acknowledge the Board of EASL on behalf of all North Texas Artists who have contributed and received a helping hand from this generous organization. The beauty of this concept is that it takes a village of dedicated artists and volunteers, who wholeheartedly support each other at a time when inevitable emergencies occur and when much help is needed. Many artists have anonymously benefited, through the generosity and love of their peers and invaluable volunteers who have created miraculous events for the success of EASL. Good wishes and love to all.“
Edith Baker, co-founder
