Grants Strengthen Arts and Cultural Organizations
Kresge Foundation: Facility Investments and Building Reserves Grants
The Kresge Foundation’s Arts and Culture Program provides support to nonprofit arts and cultural organizations in the U.S. through Facility Investments and Building Reserves Grants. This initiative is part of the program’s Institutional Capitalization focus area, which is designed to strengthen the long-term financial health of arts and cultural organizations.

Organizations may apply for two types of grants: Facility investments grants support both project costs and the creation of a building reserve, with priority given to renovation and repair projects. On occasion, new construction projects will be supported. Building reserves grants are designed to seed or enhance a fund to support the ongoing maintenance and replacement needs of an organization over time. Start-up organizations and those organizations that are government-owned are not eligible to apply. Preliminary applications are due September 15, 2010. Visit the Kresge Foundation’s website to submit an online application.
