Grants to Ontario registered charities to strengthen the community in eligible locations through arts and culture. Funding is intended for projects that promote the enjoyment and production of visual, performing, and literary arts. Programs should benefit residents in the Guelph Area.

The Foundation strengthens the community by funding projects that:
- Address community needs and emergent opportunities
- Demonstrate innovative, creative or interdisciplinary approaches
- Encourage networking or collaboration among organizations
- Demonstrate evidence of need and degree of planning
- Provide community benefit and impact
- Reflect diversity and inclusivity
- Provide leveraging possibilities or potential for additional funds from other sources

For 2020, the Musagetes Fund is particularly interested in new approaches to building community and culture. Preference will be given to organizations that engage one community-based partner who satisfies a connection(s) to social justice, environmental resilience, and intercultural relationships through the arts.
