Grants To Improve Our Community

Allied Arts administer annually, the Pailing Family Grant. Grants are awarded to non-profit 501 (C) 3 organizations to fund arts projects, particularly those that benefit populations that are otherwise underserved. Organizations receiving grant monies need not be Allied Arts Fund Members. We also offer Microgrants and Fiscal Sponsorships to individual artists. Contact us for more information!
