Grants to Broward County, Florida nonprofit organizations and county and city agencies for community arts projects. Funding is intended for projects that help transform communities and neighborhoods and help bring together diverse residents.

The Foundation's goal is to embed the arts into the DNA of Broward in ways that ignite creativity and build community pride and identity. The Foundation ultimately wants Broward to be recognized as the artistic melting pot of South Florida.

The Foundation seeks big, bold, creative projects that fall within one or both of these two areas:

  • Community/Neighborhood Transformation:
    • Infuse art forms throughout communities/neighborhoods to boost community pride and create a sense of place, such as performance arts, photography, culinary, sculptures, murals and film, literature, architecture, crafts, technology, and others.
    • Activate the arts in community spaces for access and engagement by residents.
    • Incorporate artistic elements in community revitalization and community development that otherwise may not be considered as part of the effort.
  • Bridge Barriers to Unify Residents:
    • Bring together residents across social, cultural, ethnic, religious and geographic lines using the arts as a pathway and as a unifying tool.
    • Help residents to solve problems, build relationships, and get involved in ways that build social capital - which is defined as goodwill people have toward one another where they leverage information, influence, and support.

Ensure that the project stands out by embodying these characteristics:

  • Exhibit a high level of creativity and artistic rigor. The art project challenges ordinary concepts of what art is and highlights the arts in ways that can be transformative to the community.
  • Fills a gap, expands a current offering, uncovers new artists’ talents that contribute boldly to create an arts vibe in Broward that “but for” this funding would not come to fruition.
  • People will be able to experience the arts and evoke their senses and emotions.
  • Highlight what is special about Broward. Bring the county's unique assets to life through the arts.
  • Target adult residents as the main audience because they are the decision-makers that influence children, family, friends and the community to engage in and support the arts.
  • Engages a professional artist.
  • The Foundation welcomes arts projects that replicate or expand a successful national model in Broward.
  • Must demonstrate a 1:1 match to help build a strong base of supporters for current and future arts programs. No more than 50% of the match may consist of in-kind support.
