HOW TO APPLY

In light of the devastating impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our communities, the foundation has shifted all grantmaking in 2020 to direct unrestricted support Bay Area arts organizations, including increasing the number of Legacy grants awarded, supporting regional artist relief funds, and placing the New Works grant cycle on hold.

Relief Grants for the Arts:

August 20, 2020 - September 3, 2020

Applications for relief funding will be accepted between August 20 - September 3, 2020.

The deadline for submission is 5:00 pm PST on September 3, 2020.
