There’s only one week left before the December 3 deadline to apply to our Exploring Engagement Fund, and we are looking forward to reviewing the creative proposals that many arts nonprofits will submit. As we’ve noted before, this is the only opportunity to apply to the Exploring Engagement Fund until December 2013, so we hope you'll consider applying this year. For those of you that are still working on applications or thinking about applying, we strongly encourage you to review the guidelines for applying to the fund and watch two videos of our grantees describing their Exploring Engagement Fund grants.
Grants from the Exploring Engagement Fund support nonprofit organizations as they investigate new and enriching ways to engage Californians in the arts. Irvine's new Arts program strategy seeks to promote engagement in the arts for all Californians, and the Exploring Engagement Fund is one of three new funds offered to date under the new strategy. The three funds are:
- The Exploring Engagement Fund, which supports eligible California-based nonprofit arts organizations that have an annual operating budget between $100,000 and $5 million. Deadline: December 3, 2012.
- The Exploring Engagement Fund for Priority Regions, which supports nonprofit arts organizations based in the San Joaquin Valley and Inland Empire and whose annual operating budgets are between $100,000 and $5 million. Deadline: December 3, 2012.
- The Exploring Engagement Fund for Large Organizations, an invitation-only fund that supports California-based nonprofit arts organizations with operating budgets greater than $5 million.
Additionally, you can read a previous blog post from me that announced our first-round Exploring Engagement Fund grants in June 2012.
We look forward to exploring engagement with you!
