The ArtsKC Fund is Kansas City’s united arts fund, which makes grants to artists, arts organizations, and arts programs throughout the KC region. Managed by ArtsKC, the ArtsKC Fund Campaign takes place each spring. The money raised during the Campaign is invested in the people and programs that make our community vibrant!
ArtsKC Awards Funds in Three Categories:
Ovation: Established arts organizations that reach large audiences through performances, programming and exhibitions.
