Yellow House Fund Invites Arts Organizations to Apply for Grants

Deadline: 10-15-2011

The mission of the Yellow House Fund Arts Education Initiative is to foster and develop arts organizations, including those that support young people and individual artists in presenting cultural diversity for the benefit of the community.

The Yellow House Fund Arts Education Initiative offers grants to eligible local, state, and/or national organizations in the United States (including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands) that provide distinctive arts and cultural programming directly to the underserved.

The fund will award grants of $10,000 per year for up to three years to eligible applicants working on new or existing projects in visual arts, music, and literary arts. Funds may be used for capacity building, education, youth development, and artist support.

Eligible applicants include Los Angeles County-based arts organizations that serve underserved youth (budget size $750,000 or less); national arts organizations that serve underserved youth (budget less than $750,000); and national organizations that support underserved artists and/or craftspeople domestically or internationally (budget less than $750,000). Applicants must be a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization or have an eligible fiscal sponsor. Individual artists are not eligible to receive grants.

For complete program information and application requirements, contact the fund’s offices.
