Grants to San Francisco mid-sized and small nonprofit arts organizations serving marginalized communities for capacity building projects. Funding is intended to support the artistic and cultural sustainability and vitality of local arts organizations that demonstrate substantial service to historically marginalized populations.
Priority funding goes to organizations that foster artistic expression deeply rooted in and reflective of historically marginalized communities. Using both the Cultural Equity Endowment Legislation and the Grantmakers in the Arts’ “Racial Equity: Statement of Purpose,” these communities include: African and African American; Latinx; Asian and Asian American; Arab; Native American; Pacific Islander; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer; Transgender and Gender Variant People; People with Disabilities; and Women.
SFAC recognizes that some marginalized communities may not be listed above and encourage applicants to articulate and provide supporting evidence about the marginalization for any community not named above. Applicants must note that the legislation pertains to marginalized communities and not fringe artistic disciplines.
