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!
Three Grant Categories:
Ovation: Established arts organizations that reach large audiences through performances, programming and exhibitions.
Catalyst: Growing arts and cultural organizations, as well as social services agencies, using arts programming to reach diverse audiences and serve community needs.
Inspiration: Individual artists or groups of artists who need support for projects, performances or equipment that help forward their development, innovation and future work.
Since 2007, the ArtsKC Fund has invested in more than 150 arts and social service organizations and nearly 200 artists who have shaped Kansas City’s creative landscape. In total, the ArtsKC Fund has made more than 900 grants, with a more than $4.6 million impact overall. Donations from workplace giving campaigns, corporations, foundations, municipalities, and people like you sustain this important source of funding.
