Grants of $2,000, $3,500, and $5,000 to Boston, Massachusetts small and medium-sized nonprofits that provide arts and cultural programming for general operating support. Funding is intended to assist nonprofits in providing innovative humanities, interpretive science, and arts programming that enhances the local quality of life.
Under the revised grantmaking approach, the BCC offers general operating support grants to organizations with budgets of less than $2 million.
Ensuring BCC grants contribute towards the goals above requires intentional effort to fund organizations that promote cultural equity in the Boston arts ecosystem. It is for this reason that the BCC has recently made a shift in its grantmaking strategy. Rather than grant to organizations within any budget range, going forward, the BCC will be more intentional in supporting small to mid-sized arts organizations in the Boston arts ecosystem.
Organizations can apply for the grant for the following art categories:
