NCG's Arts Loan Fund (ALF) Steering Committee is comprised of a diverse range of Bay Area funders, who are committed to the Arts. The committee convenes every four weeks to discuss issues impacting the Arts in Northern California and to review loan applications to determine awards to nonprofit arts organizations in the Bay Area.
At the November meeting, the steering committee will review one loan application and prepare for the annual January policy meeting.
