Puffin Foundation West, National Request for Proposals: Grants for Social Justice Arts Projects
Deadline: December 16th, 2016
Puffin Foundation West seeks to open the doors of artistic expression by providing grants to artist-activists and arts organizations often excluded from mainstream opportunities due to race, gender, or social philosophy.
To advance this mission, the foundation has issued a Request for Proposals for art projects that seek to enrich and inform the public on important subjects such as the environment, social justice, civil rights, and other contemporary issues that other organizations might hesitate to fund. The foundation also gives special consideration to communities and school districts underserved by the arts. For the purposes of this RFP, the foundation will consider projects from individual artists and organizations working within the visual arts, dance, music, theater, photography, film/Video, writing, poetry, and public interest platforms.
Eligible applicants include individuals as well as nonprofit educational, cultural, and social justice organizations. Only U.S. citizens/legal residents and U.S. organizations are eligible for grants.
