We fund fiscally sponsored artists & small to mid-size non-profit organizations that seek to create arts productions based in Connecticut River Valley in Western Massachusetts.

We support innovative, courageous, experimental projects that serve marginalized communities and promote the arts as a way to heal, feel, learn & transform.

We are interested in artists & organizations who:

• Increase the presence and accessibility of the arts in communities across Western Massachusetts

• Facilitate empowerment, transformation, and education through the arts

• Use arts and creativity as tools in the development of human potential

• Seek to cultivate wide audiences to engage and interact with art in unusual and atypical ways: virtually, digitally, and/or in person

We tend to fund:

• Projects led by a diverse group of artists

• Smaller organizations or start-ups

• Artists who provide arts access to low-income and other underserved people

• Those who want to make the leap of faith to the next stage of development and impact

• Those who work in collaboration with other community-based organizations

We are less likely to fund:

• Individual artists without fiscal sponsorship

• Projects based outside the Connecticut River Valley or traveling projects
