Serving the Seattle community and beyond since 1967, Allied Arts Foundation provides support to artists for the enrichment of the local and national cultural experience. AAF nurtures artists and arts groups through fiscal sponsorship, and offers annual artist grants, each year in a different genre. In addition to its sponsorship programs, the Robert J. Block Awards for Artistic Achievement are presented annually to three students in each of Seattle’s public high schools thanks to a financial contribution made to the foundation by its founder, Robert Jackson Block.

Support the arts! Allied Arts Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public nonprofit tax exempt organization of the State of Washington. Contributions to AAF are tax deductible as allowable by law.
