Visual artists often live within narrow financial constraints, even in the best of times. A medical crisis, fire, or other emergency can result in catastrophe. In response, artists and arts professionals joined together to found EASL in 1992. EASL is operated by a volunteer committee, allowing for maximum funds to be distributed to individuals in need. In addition to awarding monetary grants, EASL can offer referrals to a variety of professionals, from social workers to attorneys, who volunteer their time and expertise to help artists in other ways. Though visible when it is raising money, EASL abides by a strict policy of confidentiality regarding disbursement of funds, thereby protecting artists’ anonymity and dignity.
