Grant awards are calculated solely on a formula which compares the amount of private sector (non- governmental) contributions raised by the applicant in its two (2) most recent fiscal years. The formula is designed to reward organizations that have experienced a substantial increase in the amount of private contributions during the more recent reporting year.
Year 1 “Prior Fiscal Year”: For the portion of total donor contributions which is equal to $15,000 or more, there shall be a match of 25% of such amount, capped at $250,000.
Year 2 “Most Recent Fiscal Year”: For the portion of total donor contributions which exceeds the total donor contributions for the prior fiscal year, there shall be a match of 100%, capped at $1 million.
If in any fiscal year the total amount of matching grants to be paid exceed the investment earnings of the Arts Endowment Fund, all grants shall be reduced on a pro rata basis.
The funding period is April 15, 2018 - October 15, 2018.
