J.M. Kaplan Fund Offers Grants to Nonprofit Publishers
J.M. Kaplan Fund

Through its Furthermore program, the J.M. Kaplan Fund supports nonfiction book publishing about art, architecture, and design; cultural history, the city, and related public issues; and conservation and preservation..

The program seeks work that appeals to an informed general audience; demonstrates evidence of high standards in editing, design, and production; and promises a reasonable shelf life.

Individual grants ranging from $1,500 to approximately $15,000 may be used to support writing, research, editing, design, indexing, photography, illustration, and/or printing and binding.

Book projects to which a university press, nonprofit, or trade publisher is already committed and for which there is a feasible distribution plan are usually preferred.

Applicants must be a 501(c)(3) organization. Trade publishers and public agencies may apply for grants in partnership with an eligible fiscal sponsor.

See the Furthermore website for complete application guidelines, an FAQ, and program information.
