Ethel Louise Armstrong Foundation Offers Funding for Arts and Advocacy Programs for People With Disabilities
Deadline: September 15, 2007 (Online Application)

The Ethel Louise Armstrong Foundation (<a href=""></a>) has a vision of "Changing the Face of Disability on the Planet." The foundation works to accomplish this vision through its grant and scholarship programs.

The ELA Foundation grants funds in the areas of the arts and advocacy to U.S. nonprofit organizations that are led by or support adults with disabilities who are 22 years of age or older. In the arts, the foundation supports programs that support professional artists with disabilities or encourage a professional environment while enhancing creativity among people with disabilities who are not professional artists themselves.

In advocacy, the foundation supports programs that promote change in legislation or provide education that enhances knowledge and action to create laws and policies that will result in better lives for people with disabilities.

The foundation funds program grants only. A program grant serves a specific number of people in a set amount of time with measurable goals. Programs must demonstrate support by other foundations, corporations, and individuals in the local community.

Applicant organizations must be tax-exempt under section of the 501(c)(3) IRS Code and have been in existence for two years or longer. Grant amounts will range from $1,000 to $5,000 each.

Visit the ELA Foundation Web site for complete program guidelines and application procedures.
