The Flagstaff Arts Council invites non-profit organizations to submit project proposals for arts, science, and cultural activities taking place in the immediate Flagstaff area between July 1, 2015, and June 30, 2016, through the Art & Science Fund grant program.
Flagstaff Arts Council is dedicated to providing opportunities in the arts, sciences and culture. The Arts Council serves as the granting agency for City of Flagstaff funds including the Bed, Board, and Beverage tax funds allocated to support local arts, science, and cultural organizations and their projects.
Two types of grants are available through this funding opportunity. General Operating Support (GOS) Grants are open to organizations whose mission statement clearly defines them as arts, cultural and/or science-based institutions are eligible to apply for this funding. GOS applicants must be IRS-approved 501(c) 3 non-profit organizations registered with the State of Arizona that provide a direct public benefit to the community of Flagstaff, as stated in the applicant’s mission statement.
The other type of grant available is Project Support. Project Support grant funding is for non-profit organizations, and departments and schools within post-secondary education institutions, which can apply for funding for arts, cultural or science-based programs that take place in the greater Flagstaff area. Organizations do not need to be arts, cultural or science institutions based on their mission statement; however, the project for which funding is being requested must be an arts, cultural and/or science-based project with direct public benefit to residents of and visitors to the greater Flagstaff area. These include, but are not limited to, festivals, exhibitions, theatrical productions, concerts, workshops, seminars, performances, and lectures.
Applicants are required to attend one of two workshops in order to apply. The workshops take place on February 23 at 4pm and March 10 at 9am at the Coconino Center for the Arts. The application deadline for this cycle is Thursday, April 7, 11:59 pm. If you need assistance, you can call (928) 779-2300. Questions may also be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
