knowledge + networks + financial independence for artists


investing_in_artists_logo.jpgArtistic creation requires more than just talent - it requires an initial investment of time and money as well. For this reason, the need for grant support has become a critical part of the creative process for many working artists today.  The Investing in Artists grants program is designed to address this need by providing working artists in California with the financial resources and creative support systems they need to thrive.

Investing in Artists provides grants to individual  artists in two funding categories:

  1. Grants for Artistic Equipment and Tools (up to $6,000), and
  2. Grants for Artistic Innovation (up to $10,000). 

Applications are accepted on a deadline basis through our online grant submission process only.  Deadlines rotate by disciplines.
