Types of Grants

The Foundation awards three types of grants -- Single Year Grants, Trilogy Grants and Scholarship Fund Grants.

Single Year Grants are for a single fiscal year and may be up to $7500. Aproximately 75% of the Single year grant budget is dedicated to Arts Education projects. Organizations who have received three single year grants in consecutive years must take a one year break.

Trilogy Grants are three year grants which award the grantee a total award of $25,000 spread over three consecutive years. The first year will be $10,000 and the second and third years will be $7500 per year. Only organizations that have received at least three 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 reporting 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.

Scholarship Fund Grants are single year grants of up to $2500 to assist arts education organizations in starting/building scholarship funds to make their programs more accessible to students. These Scholarship Fund Grants have a shorter application as well as a briefer reporting form. THESE ARE NOT SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS FOR INDIVIDUALS.

Grant Application Process

The Foundation has one grant cycle per fiscal year for all grants. Grants are awarded on or around January 31st each year. Applications must be completed in the online portal by 11:59 pm on October 1st to be considered for the grant cycle. During the 2020-2021 fiscal year the Foundation will NOT be accepting applications for Single Year Grants, Scholarship Fund Grants and the Trilogy Grants. Instead of the usual open-application we will be working with our closest grantee partners on an invitation-only special grant cycle.
We expect this to be a one-time only change and expect to return to the schedule we have followed for many years for 2021. For example, the key dates for the upcoming grant cycle are as follows:

  • Complete applications entered into the online portal by October 1, 2021
  • Site Visits during October 2021 to January 2022
  • Grants awarded end of January 2022.

The dates for the subsequent full grant cycle are:

  • Complete applications entered into the online portal by October 1, 2022
  • Site Visits during October 2022 to January 2023
  • Grants awarded end of January 2023.
