The FedEx Arts Program is open to 501(c)(3) organizations in the Greater Memphis area with an arts focus, a minimum three-year history of presenting quality arts projects, and an active Board of Directors.
Note: Capital campaigns are not supported through the FedEx Arts Program funding. If you are interested in securing support for a capital campaign, please visit fedexcares.com to learn more about nonprofit funding.
Requests may be for general operating support, or for program or project support.
There is not a suggested minimum or maximum request amount but grants typically range from $5,000 to $30,000.
It is expected that other support applies to your proposed project, so it is not advisable to request a high percentage of the project budget.
Grant awards will be announced in May, so proposed projects should not begin before June 1, 2023. If you are requesting operating support, the request may be for the fiscal year that includes summer/fall 2023, winter, spring and/or summer 2024.
Funding is determined by FedEx and ArtsMemphis representatives.
