Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit and arts organizations, museums, and cultural institutions for projects that support visual artists' needs and contribute to their creative and professional development. Funding is intended to support initiatives such as exhibitions, regranting, catalogs, curatorial programs at museums, and artist residencies.

The Foundation values the contributions of all artists that reflect the true diversity of the contemporary visual art field and encourages proposals that highlight women, artists of color, and under-represented practitioners.

Priority is given to organizations that have not received recent funding.

The Foundation's grant program is primarily focused on supporting institutions within the United States. However, in rare cases, grants will be made outside the United States.

GrantWatch ID#: 173516

Term of Contract:

Single or multiple-year grants are available.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grants are made on a project basis to curatorial programs at museums, artists' organizations, and other cultural institutions.

The Foundation is unable to fund proposals using a fiscal agent.

The Foundation is also unable to make grants directly to individuals.

The Foundation will only consider proposals for museum exhibitions opening no sooner than six months from the grant notification date. (Please note: This only applies to museum exhibitions. For those institutions seeking multi-year program support, projects may begin immediately upon grant notification.)

If your organization receives a one-year grant as a result of an application in the Fall 2019 grant cycle, you would be eligible to re-apply one year later, in Fall 2020. If your organization receives a multi-year grant as a result of an application in the Fall 2019 grant cycle, you must wait one year after the final year of the grant period before re-applying, and therefore would be eligible to reapply, Fall 2022.

Priority is given to organizations that have not received recent funding.

Pre-Application Information:

Grant requests are reviewed twice a year. The postmark deadlines for proposals are March 1 with notification on July 1 and September 1 with notification on January 1.

The Foundation's grant program is primarily focused on supporting institutions within the United States. However, in rare cases, grants will be made outside the United States. For this reason, the Foundation accepts letters of inquiry from arts institutions abroad. Please include a brief description of the organization and of the project for which you are seeking funding. In limited cases, the Foundation will then request a full proposal.
