Hearst Foundations Grants
Hearst Foundations' Mission
The Hearst Foundations identify and fund outstanding nonprofits to ensure that people of all backgrounds in the United States have the opportunity to build healthy, productive and inspiring lives.
Hearst Foundations' Goals
The Foundations seek to achieve their mission by funding approaches that result in:
- Improved health and quality of life
- Access to high quality educational options to promote increased academic achievement
- Arts and sciences serving as a cornerstone of society
- Sustainable employment and productive career paths for adults
- Stabilizing and supporting families
The Hearst Foundations support well-established nonprofit organizations that address significant issues within their major areas of interests – culture, education, health and social service – and that primarily serve large demographic and/or geographic constituencies. In each area of funding, the Foundations seek to identify those organizations achieving truly differentiated results relative to other organizations making similar efforts for similar populations. The Foundations also look for evidence of sustainability beyond their support.
The Hearst Foundations fund cultural institutions that offer meaningful programs in the arts and sciences, prioritizing those which enable engagement by young people and create a lasting and measurable impact. The Foundations also fund select programs nurturing and developing artistic talent.
Types of Support: Program, capital and, on a limited basis, general and endowment support
The Hearst Foundations fund educational institutions demonstrating uncommon success in preparing students to thrive in a global society. The Foundations’ focus is largely on higher education, but they also fund innovative models of early childhood and K-12 education, as well as professional development.
Types of Support: Program, scholarship, capital and, on a limited basis, general and endowment support
The Hearst Foundations assist leading regional hospitals, medical centers and specialized medical institutions providing access to high-quality healthcare for low-income populations. In response to the shortage of healthcare professionals necessary to meet the country’s evolving needs, the Foundations also fund programs designed to enhance skills and increase the number of practitioners and educators across roles in healthcare. Because the Foundations seek to use their funds to create a broad and enduring impact on the nation’s health, support for medical research and the development of young investigators is also considered.
Types of Support: Program, capital and, on a limited basis, endowment support
The Hearst Foundations fund direct-service organizations that tackle the roots of chronic poverty by applying effective solutions to the most challenging social and economic problems. The Foundations prioritize supporting programs that have proven successful in facilitating economic independence and in strengthening families. Preference is also given to programs with the potential to scale productive practices in order to reach more people in need.
Types of Support: Program, capital and general support
Mid Atlantic Tours Grants
Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation
Mid Atlantic Tours brings the best of the performing arts to communities across the mid-Atlantic region. Presenters select from a curated roster of artists that changes annually but maintains a programmatic commitment to a diversity of performance genres, regional artist representation, and engaging with communities underserved by the arts.
Presenters located in the mid-Atlantic region who engage a Mid Atlantic Tours Roster Artist during the project period receive up to 50% subsidy for the Roster Artist’s compensation (including artistic compensation, housing, per diem and travel) as well as a presenter capacity support. Presenters work directly with the Roster Artist’s Tour Manager to negotiate terms, including engagement dates and compensation.
Once terms are confirmed between Presenter and Tour Manager, the Presenter completes a short application to Mid Atlantic Arts. Applications are not competitive, but Presenters interested in engaging a Mid Atlantic Tours Roster Artist during the project period are encouraged to confirm terms with the Artist’s Tour Manager as soon as possible as funding is limited. Final grant award distribution is determined by Mid Atlantic Arts staff in collaboration with Tour Managers.
Visit midatlanticarts.org to review the roster.
The Mid Atlantic Tours roster is curated by Mid Atlantic Arts staff with curatorial advisement from performing arts colleagues from the mid-Atlantic region. As a final step in the curatorial process, mid-Atlantic region Presenters indicate interest in prospective Roster Artists through a presenter interest survey conducted via email.
The selection process for the Mid Atlantic Tours roster prioritizes:
- Projected touring success for Roster Artists: tour feasibility & presenter interest
- Broad representation of multiple performance genres
- Broad geographic representation from artists based in different states/jurisdictions in the mid-Atlantic region
- Artists and creators who are actively engaged with diverse communities to energize the transformative power of the arts
Mid Atlantic Arts is committed to countering structural inequities based on race, gender, disability status, sexual orientation, class, age and geography through our programs.
Touring Preparation Residency
Each Mid Atlantic Tours roster artist may work with one presenter for a Touring Preparation Residency that does not include a public performance. All other guidelines and procedures for Mid Atlantic Tours engagements must be met, including the artist fee match from the presenter to the Roster Artist.

- extended technical residency
- work-in-process showing
- a rehearsal or demo of a prospective community engagement activity

Iber Exchange Grant Program
Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation
NOTE: Artists must apply to Ibermúsicas for support before October 1, 2022. All presenters interested in receiving grant subsidies and forming part of selected tours must submit their online grant form by April 25, 2023. Presenters must invite artists for a public performance in addition to a community engagement activity between July 1, 2023 and June 30, 2024.
Mid Atlantic Arts was established to promote and support multi-state arts programming in a region that includes Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Virginia, and West Virginia. It is one of six regional arts organizations in the United States, and works in close partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and its member state and jurisdictional arts agencies. Mid Atlantic Arts distinguishes itself through its work in international cultural exchange, model programs in performing arts touring, its knowledge and presence in the jazz field, and its support of folk and traditional arts.
Mid Atlantic Arts nurtures and funds the creation and presentation of diverse artistic expression and connects people to meaningful arts experiences within our region and beyond.
Mid Atlantic Arts envisions a future in which artists and creators are actively engaged with diverse communities to energize the transformative power of the arts.
Iber Exchange Grant ProgramMid Atlantic Arts believes in the power of the arts to promote a greater understanding of other cultures. Iber Exchange is a grant program designed to increase availability of international music programming throughout the Mid Atlantic region and to promote a greater understanding of other cultures through the performing arts. Iber Exchange provides fee support grants to nonprofit presenters located in the mid-Atlantic region that contract artists as part of the Iber Exchange program in collaboration with the Ibermúsicas organization.
Mid Atlantic Arts recognizes that international touring is most cost-effective for presenters and artists when multiple presenters collaborate to bring an artist to various communities in one trip. This program offers the opportunity for both presenters and artists to receive funding to facilitate collaborative cultural exchange.
Ibermúsicas is a nongovernmental organization dedicated to supporting the diversity and growth of the Iberoamerican music sector. Members include Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Spain, and Uruguay. Ibermúsicas provides grants to support the mobility and development of musicians in their member countries.
How it Works

- Artist Selection:
- Artists must be based in Ibermúsicas’ member countries to apply for funding and meet eligibility criteria.
- Nonprofit presenters in mid-Atlantic Arts’ region interested in inviting an international music ensemble or solo musician should provide a letter of invitation to the artist so that artists can apply directly to Ibermúsicas.
- Artists selected following panel review will receive grant support directly from Ibermúsicas to defray visa costs.
- Presenter Grant Support:
- Nonprofit mid-Atlantic presenters who provided letters of invitation to these artists when they applied to Ibermúsicas will be eligible for grant support from Mid Atlantic Arts for up to 50% of the negotiated artist fee.

Hubert E. Sapp Regular Grant Cycle
Southern Partners Fund
MissionThe mission of Southern Partners Fund (SPF) is to serve rural Southeastern communities and organizations seeking social, economic and environmental justice by providing them with financial resources, technical assistance, training and access to systems of information and power. There are two central ideas embraced in the democratic philanthropy of Southern Partners Fund: compassion and community. Compassion implies an understanding or concern for community members lacking local political power to impact the decisions that affect their lives. Community relates to the things that bring us and hold us together.
The Purpose of SPF Grantmaking is to:
- Develop and nurture grassroots community-based leaders and organizers.
- Build the capacity of rural, grassroots community organizing groups and leaders.
- Strengthen rural communities and people.
- Develop equitable peer relationships, which support real transformation toward a just society.
Hubert E. Sapp Regular Grants Cycle
SPF’s grantee partners are transforming their communities by building sustainable organizations aimed at reversing the inequities of the rural South. They are learning not to focus on the symptoms of inequities, but on the root cause; racist and anti immigrant mindsets of small-town mayors and city council members. SPF’s grantees are tackling social and economic systems that for them have been rooted in persistent poverty and lack of resources, compounded by poorly performing schools.
We are proud to partner with extraordinary community organizations and coalitions through our regular grants cycle, assisting them to build capacity and power. We believe general operating support is best for building capacity, particularly for small to midsize community-based organizations in the rural South.
In 2013, SPF’s board adopted its Southern Organizing Strategy, focusing 60% of grant funds on three special initiatives:
- Voter Rights & Engagement
- Immigration Rights
- Education Reform
In 2019, under the banner of “revolutionary change,” SPF’s board decided to integrate census and redistricting work into the ongoing major initiatives above as each was directly impacted by the Census and Redistricting process that laid ahead. Though there are still pending redistricting lawsuits in many of our southeastern states, for 2022, SPF is back to its original SOS strategy, with at least 60% of regular grant cycle funds going to Voter Rights & Engagement, Immigration Rights, and Education Reform.
The remaining 40% of grants will continue to fund:
- Environmental Justice
- Healthcare Reform
- Women & Girls' Leadership
- Economic Justice
- Incarceration Reform
- Youth Leadership
- Housing Reform
- LGBTQ Rights
- Disability Rights
During this cycle SPF will not consider grants to organizations with operating budgets over $350,000 for general operating support. If the budget is over $350,000 an organization may apply for project support.

- Increase the capacity of local organizations to address mobility and accessibility considerations on public lands and waterways; and
