This grant allows individual artists of all media and backgrounds to receive funding for smaller projects on a one-
time basis by offering one-time grants up to $500.
Join Arts Connection and help us build this important resource for the arts community – either as a microgrant sponsor or applicant. Together, we will lead the way for change!
Artists of all medium and backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to apply. Proposed projects do not have to be completed with this funding. Projects do not have to be new and they do not need to be large in scope, but they should demonstrate impact on the community served or the artistic practice in focus. For example, proposed projects might be single events, a series; or include mentoring or professional research. The amount of grants available is based on the amount of donations we receive.
These microgrants will allow San Bernardino County artists to create new, innovative projects that may never happen without your generosity. Donations can be of any amount and donations of less than the average $500 microgrant will be combined with others. To ensure we identify the correct number of artist recipients, all donations must be received by March of every year before the awards are made. All sponsors will be recognized on the Arts Connection Website and at the microgrant awards event scheduled in April of every year..
To sponsor a microgrant, simply send a check in any amount to: Arts Connection 5500 University Parkway VA 308 San Bernardino, CA 92407 Please be sure your check is made out to Arts Connection and includes a notation it is to be used for the Microgrant initiative.
