How to Apply

Trilogy Grants: Only organizations that have received at least two Single Year grant awards from the Foundation are eligible to apply for a Trilogy Grant. Only four Trilogy Grants will be awarded each year. An organization that is awarded a Trilogy Grant will be expected to provide yearly feedback and will be required to take one year off at the conclusion of the grant. Unsuccessful applicants for the Trilogy Grant will be automatically considered for a Single Year Grant. Because we limit the number of applications for Trilogy Grants each year, organizations interested in applying should contact the Foundation to discuss and request the Trilogy Grant Application. Organizations who are approved to apply will be given the password to use in the Trilogy section of our online application portal.

Scholarship Fund Grants: The Foundation will consider a small number of applications each year from arts education non-profits that would like to start or expand Scholarship Funds for their organization. Grants for Scholarship Funds are single year grants of up to $2500. Organizations applying for these funds are expected to have a process in place for identifying children/families who would benefit from financial assistance to participate in the organization's programs. Like the Single Year Grants, recipients of these Scholarship Fund Grants may receive grants for up to three years before taking a "year-off" from applying. Potential Scholarship Fund applicants are encouraged to begin the process by sending a Letter of Inquiry as described below in the Single Year Grant section. Scholarship Fund Grants are NOT counted toward the two Single Year Grant requirement for applying for Trilogy Grants. THIS IS NOT A PROGRAM THAT AWARDS SCHOLARSHIPS TO INDIVIDUALS FOR ANY PURPOSE.

To apply, use the APPLY button on the Grant Information page of our website.

Single Year Grants:

Letter of Inquiry:

Single Year Grant and Scholarship Fund Grant seekers new to the Foundation are strongly encouraged to begin the process by a letter of inquiry. Letters of Inquiry can be sent via paper mail or email.  The letter (1-2 pages) should briefly describe the grant applicant and the project.   It should contain enough information for the Foundation to determine whether or not the application falls within its program interest areas.  Some key points are: 

  • Brief history and goals of your organization.
  • Brief description of the project for which you are requesting support including objectives and expected outcomes.
  • The approximate schedule for the proposed project.
  • The total amount of funding needed, the amount requested from the Foundation, and information about other sources of support both assured and requested.

Letters of inquiry should receive a response within two - three weeks of our receiving them in the Foundation Office (this time may be longer during the summer months). We will attempt to respond withing two - three days during the month of September just prior to the October 1st deadline.   The Foundation will 1) decline those requests that do not fit within our interest areas; 2) contact you for more information if the fit is unclear; or 3) contact you to encourage you to complete the entire application process.  Please be aware that due to our limited resources, our encouragement to send an application should not be taken as an indication of the final success of your request.   We are unfortunately not able to provide grants to all of the worthy applications we receive. 

Single Year Application

Our Application is now entirely online and can be accessed through the APPLY button on the Grant Information page of our website. We will no longer accept paper applications.
