About this funder:



For the Spring grant cycle 2017, LOIs will be accepted in the following areas only:

Arts & Culture:  The Foundation intends to award $10,000 grants to performing arts organizations for capacity building projects that improve the infrastructure of organizations with an emphasis on reaching more people.  Capital campaigns and building expansion projects will also be considered.  

  • Examples include:
  • software and/or hardware technology to improve the infrastructure of the operations and to reach more people;
  • building renovations and new building purchases for expansion projects;

Education:  The Foundation wishes to encourage internships at nonprofits for college undergraduate and/or graduate students (grants distributed in 2017 may be utilized for 2018 internships as needed). We encourage nonprofits to provide an above minimum wage stipend to interns.
