The IFPDA Foundation
The Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization established by the IFPDA in 2010 to educate the public and to provide grants to museums and nonprofit institutions for exhibitions, scholarly projects, and educational programs focused on fine prints. In addition to support from the IFPDA, the Foundation accepts financial contributions and organizes fundraising events aimed at forging a deeper understanding and appreciation of fine prints across the art historical spectrum.
Join this important support group whose generous contributions, along with annual funding from the International Fine Print Dealers Association, supports the Foundation's new initiatives and expansion of its Grants program. This year's Cocktail Benefit will be hosted by Dr. Louis Aledort on Friday, November 8. Funds raised through this event will further the Foundation’s grants program and support its new internship program, which will place four interns in top institutional print collections in the summer of 2014.

To be eligible for consideration, museums must be primarily devoted to the exhibition of works of art, be open to the public, and be legally organized nonprofits or government entities. Selection of the 2013 recipient has been completed. Institutions who wish to be considered for the 2014 prize may make their request in writing to the IFPDA Foundation.
