How It Works

The Foundation funds projects in the areas of art and art education, including art-making facilities such as classrooms, studios, residencies, academies and museums. We do not typically fund theatre, film, individual artists, or organizations that would use their award to fund other grants. Grants range from $500 – $10,000. Organizations must have a 501C3 status to apply.
