Our Board of Directors approved $18.5 million in grants at its quarterly meeting last week. Of the 23 approved grants, 10 grants were within Arts, nine grants within California Democracy, two in our Youth program, one in Special Initiatives, and one Special Opportunity grant.

Here are some highlights of the new grants:

New California Arts Fund — The Arts program made grants to 10 organizations totaling over $8 million under the New California Arts Fund (NCAF). These grants, part of the next phase of our Arts strategy, will support arts nonprofits to adapt to change and move engagement to the core of their mission.

Voter Outreach and Technology (VOTE) Initiative — Our California Democracy program made grants to organizations as part of the Voter and Civic Engagement priority. The Regents of the University of California received $400,000 to evaluate voter outreach experiments and identify best practices in nonpartisan voter mobilization. Together, these grants are experimenting with new voter-targeting methods to effectively incorporate new technologies to increase the impact of voter outreach efforts.
