The foundation has shifted all grantmaking in 2020 in response to the devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the challenges facing the arts and culture sector across the Bay Area. After issuing two cycles of relief funding which prioritized support for working artists and small arts organizations, the foundation is currently focusing on preparing grantmaking guidelines for 2021. 

Please check back in March 2021 for further details about future funding opportunities.
