GIFTED invests in artists to ensure their success and our region’s artistic prosperity.

The Sunshine Coast Arts Foundation’s Annual Giving program, GIFTED, invests in creative development of artists to ensure their success and our region’s artistic prosperity.

GIFTED was launched in November 2020 with a very generous gift by the De Deyne Family. Ferre De Deyne is a SCAF Board Director, Sunshine Coast businessman, art collector and philanthropist.

Here on the Sunshine Coast we are ‘gifted’ by the fabulous environment, a caring community and, most importantly, with gifted artists and creatives, who are talented, innovative, entrepreneurial and engaging. The program supports artists across the variety of disciplines, in keeping with the Foundation’s purpose.
