The purpose of our Enhancement Grants, which come from a specific fund of our endowment, is to provide financial support for extraordinary cultural experiences by investing in visionary or innovative strategies to drive organizations’ achievement of their mission and goals. Please review the information on the tabs below for eligibility requirements and application guidelines.
Enhancement Grants are intended to function as venture investments and to have an impact for multiple years such that the organization can continue to make progress and realize the benefits of the funding before submitting a request for another Enhancement Grant.
Projects or initiatives should be visionary and innovative, not capital in nature. Provide rationale or evidence as to the visionary or innovative nature of your proposal.
Projects or initiatives based on research or evaluation should provide this information as reference for the proposal.
