We drive support in ways that make the greatest impact.

ArtsMemphis awards over 160 grants per year in a variety of different categories, including support for organizations and individual artists.  

In addition to the grant programs we administer directly, ArtsMemphis serves as an advisor and steward for charitable giving by external partners – including businesses, government agencies, and family foundations.  We work in concert with these partners to help them achieve their philanthropic goals by drawing from our expansive knowledge of local arts organizations.  Use the links in this section to learn more about these areas of giving.

In March 2018, we conducted two information sessions to share information about our organization and programs, with particular attention to our Operating Support Grant program.  Click here to download a copy of that presentation.  Feedback provided by session participants is being evaluated and further program revisions incorporating this feedback will be communicated during follow up sessions in May or June, dates to be announced.  To receive notices about these sessions, please subscribe using the button at the bottom of this page and sign up for “Grants for Organizations” announcements.

ArtsMemphis is a registered Non-Profit Public Charity.
