Types of Grants
Starting in 2015, The Foundation will award three types of grants -- Single Year Grants, Scholarship Fund Grants and Trilogy Grants.
Single Year Grants are for a single fiscal year and can be up to $7500.
Trilogy Grants are three year grants which award the grantee $7500 per year for three consecutive years. Only organizations that have received at least two Single Year grant awards from the Foundation are eligible to apply for a Trilogy Grant. Only four Trilogy Grants will be awarded each year. An organization that is awarded a Trilogy Grant will be expected to provide yearly feedback and will be required to take one year off at the conclusion of the grant. Unsuccessful applicants for the Trilogy Grant will be automatically considered for a Single Year Grant.
New in 2015, we will offer Scholarship Fund Grants of up to $2500 to assist arts education organizations in starting/maintaining scholarship funds to make their programs more accessible to students. Please contact us for the Scholarship Fund Grant application.
Grant Application Process
The Foundation has one grant cycle per fiscal year for all grants. Grants are awarded January 31st each year. Applications must be postmarked by October 1st of the previous year to be considered for the grant cycle.
