The Kresge Foundation’s Arts and Culture Program helps nonprofit arts and cultural organizations in the U.S. properly maintain their buildings through Facility Investments and Building Reserves Grants. This initiative is part of the program’s Institutional Capitalization focus area, which is designed to strengthen the long-term financial health of arts and cultural organizations.
Organizations may apply for two types of grants: Facility investments grants support an organization’s renovation and repair projects. (On occasion, new construction projects that include exemplary environmental sustainability practices will be supported.) Building reserves grants are designed to seed or enhance a fund to support the ongoing maintenance and replacement needs of an organization’s facilities over time. Start-up organizations and those organizations that are government-owned are not eligible to apply.
Preliminary applications are due March 1, 2012. Visit the Kresge Foundation’s website to learn more about the program.
