Overview:

Wells Fargo Cultural Excellence Grants celebrate the creativity of our cultural sector and express our belief that together we can open young minds to experiences, talents, and dreams they may not otherwise develop. Cultural Excellence Grants will be awarded to art, culture, science, and history organizations that promote education through innovative school collaborations and non-traditional teaching. Your grant request should focus on this question:

“How could your organization use $10,000 to provide educational experiences for youth?”

We will award approximately 10 – 15 Cultural Excellence Grants totaling over $100,000. Any art, culture, science or history organization operating in Maryland but excluding Prince George’s County and Montgomery County may apply. Cultural Excellence Grants will be the only Wells Fargo grants provided in Maryland to organizations of this kind in 2018.

  • You may apply this grant to a program that has a budget greater than $10,000 and has other funding sources.
    • Therefore, the project budget that you upload does not have to equal $10,000 but should indicate how this grant would be applied.
