BCF Community Arts Grants Available!

The Baltimore Community Foundation (BCF) believes the arts are a critical component of vibrant neighborhoods and a vibrant city, and therefore intends to make grants to programs that engage neighborhood residents in making art that benefits their communities; and forge partnerships among established arts institutions, community-based arts organizations, grassroots artists, and local neighborhoods.

BCF’s Neighborhood Grants Program provides Community Arts Grants of up to $7,500 to support projects conducted in partnership by neighborhood groups, local artists, and arts organizations to increase neighborhood vibrancy.

Applicant organizations must either have 501(c)(3) nonprofit status or apply through a nonprofit fiscal agent. Examples of suitable projects include:

  • An artist residency with a community organization
  • An arts project as part of an organizing/advocacy campaign
  • Professional development for a local artist who will use her new skills to design a neighborhood project

Applications for this first round of 2012 Community Arts Funding are due May 15, 2012. A second round of applications will be considered later in the year.

Download the application in MS Word format.
