ArtsFund’s Annual Allocations Grants
ArtsFund’s Annual Allocations Grants support organizational health and strengthen the Puget Sound arts ecosystem. Application is by invitation only, and organizations must meet minimum eligibility requirements for funding consideration. Invitations for the 2023 cycle will be sent out in January, with awards to be issued in June.
These unrestricted grants enable grant recipients to invest the funds where needed most to advance their missions. ArtsFund’s allocations are awarded by a panel of public, private, and corporate grantmaking experts who engage with ArtsFund in a thorough vetting process, evaluating application materials and interviewing the leadership of arts groups. Applications are evaluated in alignment with ArtsFund’s strategic framework with the goal of advancing organizational health, youth and family engagement, and equity and inclusion throughout the arts sector.
Invitations for the 2023 cycle were sent out in January, with awards to be issued in June. ArtsFund recently implemented a new multi-year cycle for allocations grants, meaning that groups only need to submit applications in the first year of their three-year grant cycle. Groups that are not required to submit an application will be asked to complete an interim report, which will be sent out in March.
