Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants and other resources to USA nonprofit organizations for projects that foster greater understanding between communities. A letter of interest is required prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to be used for arts and media projects toward developing relationships and enhancing mutual respect between Muslim-Americans and non-Muslims. Grantees will also receive strategic communications support during the grant period from a Foundation-appointed consultant.

The Building Bridges 2020 Grants Program will support planning and implementation of projects that engage U.S.-based Muslims and their neighbors in arts- and media-based experiences designed to advance relationships and understanding for mutual well-being. Through this approach, the program’s larger aim is to contribute toward a more just civil society and greater well-being among people.

Proposed projects or programs should offer engaging, immersive and interactive experiences that may be conducted in collaboration with other organizations and are tailored to the needs and interests of the specific intended audience(s). There are many ways organizations might design, structure and implement projects that engage U.S.-based Muslims and their neighbors through literary, multi-media- and/or performing arts-based experiences to foster relationships and understanding between communities. Organizations are encouraged to draw upon their core capabilities, knowledge of the selected population(s) and resources in the creation of their proposals.

Competitive projects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Development of new programs informed by past experience with successful U.S.-based or international artistic programming.
  • Expansion of existing programs that advance Building Bridges Grants Program goals.
