Grants of up to $5,000 to Georgia nonprofit arts organizations in eligible counties for general operating support. Funding is intended to mitigate revenue losses due to performance and event cancellations as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Eligible applicants are performing arts organizations impacted by COVID-19 across the Atlanta metro area. The 23-County region of impact includes: Barrow, Bartow, Butts, Carroll, Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, Morgan, Newton, Paulding, Pickens, Rockdale, Spalding, Walton.

A Place to Perform is an initiative of the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta created after the theater space of the 14th Street Playhouse became unavailable to a wide range of Atlanta’s nonprofit performing arts organizations. Historically, A Place to Perform has provided grants to nonprofit arts organizations to assist them financially in gaining access to performance venues so they can produce performing arts experiences for the public throughout the Foundation’s 23-county metro Atlanta region.

With mass gatherings of people banned to prevent the spread of COVID-19, performing arts organizations have been threatened with significant revenue losses. In light of the current public health crisis, A Place to Perform funds will be made available to nonprofit performing arts organizations that have had to cancel or postpone performances or events due to the pandemic.
