Art Grants & Artist Funding Resources

Art Fortune | Art Grants


Art Grants are funds disbursed by individual party or parties (Art Grant Makers), usually a Government Department, Corporation, Foundation or Trust, to a recipient, often (but not always) a nonprofit entity, educational institution or business. Such application processes, generally require some form of "Grant Writing" often referred to as either a proposal or a submission.


Many Art Grant Makers require Art & Artist Grant Seekers to have some form of tax-exempt status, be a registered nonprofit organization or a local government. Most grants are made to fund a specific project and require some level of compliance and reporting. The Art Grant Writing process involves an artist submitting a proposal (or submission) to a potential funder, either on the artist's own initiative or in response to a Request for Proposal from the funder. Other artist grants can be given to individuals such as artists who seek to open a small art business.

In the US, artist grants most often come from a wide range of Government departments or an even wider range of public and private trusts and foundations. According to the Foundation Center these trusts and foundations number in excess of 88,000 and disperse in excess of $40 billion every year.


Due to the complex and evermore competitive nature of artists grant seeking, many grant seekers engage the services of professional grant research and Grant Writing services.


Most often, grants are issued by the government to students through attending post-secondary art schools and visual art institutions. In certain cases, a part of a government loan is issued as an art grant, particularly pertaining to promising students seeking financial support for continuing their educations.
