How to Apply


The Foundation has a two-stage online application process which includes an initial inquiry and an invited full proposal. As a first step, we strongly suggest reviewing the program guidelines before making an inquiry. This will allow you to confirm that your proposed work aligns with the Foundation's strategic priorities and eligibility requirements.

Please note that Arts Education, Core Support for Arts and Cultural Organizations, and New Audiences/New Places have unique review processes, which may include site visits and proposal review by an internal team composed of board members and staff. As a result, these programs have unique deadlines, instructions, and Inquiry forms which are accessible from their landing pages.
