Creative Expression

Recognizing the arts contribute to healthy communities and local economies, we also know talented folks can educate, inspire, and bring about lasting change. We will support projects related to visual arts, performing arts, music, dance, poetry, spoken word, and film that promote diverse voices, cultural understanding, community murals and artistic innovation.

We will accept applications at three levels:

Level 1 – Projects asking for $5,000-$14,999

Level 2 – Projects asking for $15,000-$49,999

Level 3 – Projects asking for $50,000 – $100,000. For large projects, we ask for collaboration between two or more organizations. One would be a 501(c)(3) community benefit organization, and the other could be a CBO, a for-profit entity, or a municipal entity.

This application is closed.
