AFC's Art for Conservation program was established in 2004 as an online platform that would enable artists to offer their artwork for sale, with a portion of the proceeds earmarked to a conservation organization/charity of their choice. All sales are directly with the artist and AFC takes no commission, except in cases where the artist has chosen to designate AFC as the beneficiary.
The program established a model and guiding principal underlying most AFC programs, in which AFC members are provided platforms to champion those causes that are most important to them. With hundreds of members from over 30 countries, AFC has meant has helped bring attention and fundraising opportunities to nearly 300 conservation NGOs doing important work around the globe.
There are several ways to find artwork under this program:
Visit the Artwork Search page, where you can see latest works by individual artists and filter and sort by several criteria such as subject, availability of originals or limited editions and artwork type (e.g. paintings vs. sculptures).
Find artwork that has proceeds pledged to a specific cause or conservation NGO.
Artwork under this program is highlighted in dozens of galleries dedicated to specific environmental dates, such as World Ocean Day, World Giraffe Day, Save the Rhino Day, etc...
Each AFC artist member can maintain their own portfolio of artwork that is for sale. Artwork pledged under this program is indicated next to each artwork with a pledge percentage.
