Facility Investments and Building Reserves Grants for Arts & Culture

Kresge Foundation Arts and Culture Program Invites Pre-Applications for Facility Investments and Building Reserves Grants
Deadline: May 17, 2010 (Pre-application Emails)

The Kresge Foundation has announced a new national strategy for its Arts and Culture Program that is designed to foster the long-term financial stability of arts and cultural organizations, support artists’ services, and help integrate arts and culture institutions and activities into effective community building.

The foundation’s grantmaking under the new strategy will be focused in three areas: Institutional Capitalization, Artists’ Support Services, and Arts and Community Building.

Institutional Capitalization now includes the Arts and Culture Program’s investments in cultural facilities and building reserves funds. Under the new strategy, the Arts and Culture Program will prioritize renovation and repair projects. The program will no longer consider traditional facilities or capital challenge grant applications. All requests for cultural facilities funding must be made through the program’s Institutional Capitalization focus area.

With this announcement, the Arts and Culture Program is also inviting pre-application emails for facility investments and building reserves grants.

In fall 2010, another call will be made for applications for facility investments and building reserves. Deadline dates will be posted in July as a program update on the front page of the Kresge Web site and also in the Arts and Culture Program section. All other grantmaking opportunities are by invitation only. Unsolicited applications are not accepted.
