Grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 to San Francisco Bay Area, California small nonprofit arts organizations for innovative artistic presentations. Eligible artistic disciplines include dance, theater, music, visual arts, film, and interdisciplinary arts. The primary emphasis of this funding stream is to present the work of living artists in the Bay Area.

Innovative new work is the priority. Applications to mount historical works by artists no longer living will not be considered, unless there is a significant new artistic voice that is shaping the project (e.g. composer, choreographer, director, or playwright).

Grants may be awarded for: artists’ fees for creative time; production costs for performances, post production costs for film projects; exhibition/installation costs for visual, media, or interdisciplinary arts projects; activities that contribute to overall artistic development; and efforts to strengthen an organization’s artistic impact within the community and/or an artistic discipline.

The Foundation seeks to fund a broad range of arts groups during the course of each year. It strives to make grants that represent a diversity of arts disciplines, aesthetic sensibilities, and forms of cultural expression. The Foundation priorities grant requests which best support working artists.

The awards range from $1,000 to $10,000, and are usually between $2,000 and $5,000.

The grant period is one year from the date of Board of Directors approval.
