The following list of resources may be helpful for those in the arts community. Our goal in arts grantmaking is to encourage and support the general public’s growing awareness of and engagement in the arts in Summit County. We are open to all art forms, from visual to performance art and beyond. Arts initiatives that receive grants must have a component that is open to the public, such as a performance or gallery show. In order to focus the available arts funds, we do not ordinarily make grants for endowments or capital funding. We prefer to fund operations and projects.
