The Fleishhacker Foundation is accepting applications to its Special Projects program from larger mid-sized Bay Area arts and culture organizations.
Through the program, grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded in support of special artistic projects or initiatives, artistic collaborations or commissions involving local artists, and/or upgrades to facilities that benefit artists and audiences (when not part of a large capital campaign).
Special Arts Grants are awarded based on their potential impact on the applicant organization, arts discipline, and local community. Arts organizations with annual budgets between $750,000 and $2.5 million will be considered if their project is timely and (due to its scope) requires special grant funding. Film projects with budgets between $750,000 and $2.5 million also will be considered, if applying with an eligible fiscal sponsor.
To be eligible, applicants must be an arts and cultural organization incorporated as a nonprofit and located in the greater San Francisco Bay Area; be able to demonstrate a consistent artistic presence in the Bay Area for at least three years; have an annual budget between $750,000 and $2.5 million; and/or be a film project with a budget between $750,000 and $2.5 million and have the fiscal sponsorship of a nonprofit organization. Capital campaigns, endowment campaigns, and fundraising events are not eligible.
Only Bay Area residents and organizations will be considered.
