The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts is a 501(c)(3) public charity, incorporated in New York in April 1992. Co-Founded by Jane Stephenson and Guy Buckles, the initial “seed money” was a bequest from Elizabeth Stanley, Stephenson’s mother and a long-time patron of the arts. To recognize Elizabeth’s generosity, the foundation was named after her.

EFA is dedicated to providing artists across all disciplines with space, tools and a cooperative forum for the development of individual practice. The organization is a catalyst for cultural growth, stimulating new interactions between artists, creative communities and the public.
