Presenting Grants

Deadlines: June 1 and September 1

These are applications to present a performing artist or group in a community setting. Presenting grants pay half the artists’ fees and must be matched entirely with cash. Applicants presenting more than one performer or group in a grant period may combine those requests in a single application, but the request is still for half of each performer’s fee. Performers must be based outside the county where the applicant is located. Signed contracts from each performer to be presented must be included with the application.

Funding amounts: Request must be half the performing artist’s fee and must be matched with cash.

You may request up to $10,000. However, grant awards rarely exceed $7,500.
