Overview:

Cultural Relief Fund

As closures, cancellations, and loss of work due to COVID-19 impact the King County cultural sector, our Cultural Relief Fund will distribute more than $1 million over the coming months.

Cultural Relief Fund: Organizations

One-time grants of up to $5,000 are available for unexpected costs and losses related to the COVID-19 virus. The first round of funding will be available April 1 through May 15; apply at any time within that time frame. A panel will review applications weekly and notify you within ten business days about the status of your application.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • All applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:
    • Any organization whose primary mission relates to arts, heritage, or preservation may apply for Cultural Relief funds.
      • However, if you are awarded funds and your organization is not a nonprofit or public development authority, you must find a fiscal sponsor before you can claim your award.
      • If you are unable or do not wish to secure a fiscal sponsor, you may apply for Cultural Relief funding as an individual.
    • You must have a minimum 2-year track record of programming or activity.
    • You must be located in and serving King County, Washington.
    • You must demonstrate a direct financial impact from the outbreak of the COVID 19 virus, including but not limited to: loss of income (e.g. ticket sales, admissions, earned revenue, or rental fees) or loss of opportunity (e.g. cancelation of events, including fundraising events; cancellation or postponement of programs).
    • You must not be a 4Culture staff, Advisory Committee, or Board member, or a 4Culture Cultural Relief Fund panelist during the period of review.
