Grants ranging from $2,000 - $15,000 for organizations that support arts and culture in the Greater Philadelphia area. The Foundation’s goal is to help enhance the quality of life by promoting an arts and cultural community. Grants will be awarded to organizations and projects in the Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties in order to expand the role of art and culture in the lives of individuals, communities, and the region.
Organizations in the field of arts and culture can apply in three ways, project grants, planning grants, and community fund grants.

The project grant offers funding to promote collaboration between arts and culture organizations. The goal of this grant is to prevent duplication of efforts and increase organizational effectiveness. The planning grant encourages organizations to consider new ways to grow by either re-structuring or creating new innovative programs. Finally, the community fund will award unrestricted grants to organizations in the five-county Philadelphia area whose primary mission is based in arts and culture.


Only tax-exempt organizations that have had their 501(c)(3) status for at least three years are eligible.
All grants are limited to organizations located in the five-county Philadelphia area, consisting of Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery counties.
No grants to individuals are authorized.
