Funding Opportunity

Vitality Grants: Supporting Arts and Culture

Purpose

The Arts and Culture Action Area supports our goal to strengthen regional vitality by encouraging vibrant and diverse arts and cultural offerings and improving the capacity of local arts organizations.

Applications are invited from nonprofit organizations with programs that support this goal. Current funding opportunities include (but are not limited to) support for:

  • Music education (with a particular emphasis on Monroe County);
  • Programs that encourage adults’ pursuit of theater education; and
  • Efforts to promote the growth and expansion of new and existing performing and fine arts programs.

Of particular interest are programs that:

  • Provide new opportunities for the community’s engagement with the arts;
  • Need resources for long-term sustainability or growth;
  • Provide access to arts and cultural opportunities in otherwise underserved communities; or 
  • Celebrate or promote the region’s rich racial/cultural diversity.

Typical Grant Size

$4,000 - $5,000

Eligibility Criteria

Applicants must be 501(c)(3) organizations or 509(a)(1) public organizations in our eight-county region, which comprises Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, and Yates counties.

Application Due Date(s)

Applications are due on or before Friday, November 16, 2018. Future opportunities will be announced in our quarterly e-newsletter, News You Can Use. (Click to subscribe.)
