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.
