Letter of inquiry concerning financial assistance



We seek to assist art museums, cultural centers and other organizations in furthering education in American representational art.

The first step in securing a grant is to submit a letter of inquiry by email to determine eligibility. The letter (maximum two pages) should include a brief description of the project, benefits to be realized and a rough estimate of the amount of financial support to be requested. If the project is eligible for consideration, we will contact you regarding further steps leading to project funding.

We don't fund capital improvements, conservation programs or ordinary operating expenses.
