Grant DetailGraham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts Invites Applications
Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts
Founded in 1956, the Chicago-based Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts provides project-based grants to individuals and organizations and produces public programs designed to foster the development and exchange of diverse and challenging ideas about architecture and its role in the arts, culture, and society.
With the goal of promoting dialogue, raising awareness, and developing new and broader audiences, the foundation is inviting applications from nonprofit organizations working to provide programs about architecture and the designed environment. Grants are intended to support nonprofits willing to take risks in programming and create opportunities for experimentation, as well as to help them recognize the role they play in providing individuals with a public forum in which to present their work. Projects will be judged on their originality, potential for impact, and feasibility. The foundation is most interested in opportunities that enable it to provide critical support at key points in the development of a project.
To be eligible, applicants must be a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. Under some circumstances, the foundation will make grants to other entities where there is clear evidence that the public interest will be served — for example in the case of a publisher or an emerging organization that does not yet have tax-exempt status.
