“Intersection doesn’t just provide us with the logistical support for accounting and grant management, they keep us connected with other arts organizations in our community so that we can all work together make sure the arts are valued in San Francisco and the Bay Area.”

Todd Berman

“Through the support of Intersection, I’ve received numerous grants for my creative work and curatorial projects. These grants have also enabled me to support collaborating artists, thus spreading the support to the larger arts community. I’m grateful for Intersection in helping me make my dreams and aspirations real.”



“Arts Ed Matters has been fiscally sponsored by Intersection since 2011. We LOVE Intersection. Their fiscal sponsorship, professional support, strategic planning, and space rentals have all been instrumental in the growth and expansion of our work and outreach. We simply could not exist without Intersection!”
