Community Centered Arts and Culture Grant Program (United States)


Deadline: 25-Sep-20

The Stanislaus Community Foundation is seeking applications for its Youth or Community Centered Arts and Culture Grant program to stabilize and secure the ongoing operation of these nonprofit services that are critical to young people and/or contribute to the vibrancy of Stanislaus County.

1000 new grants and donors
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a crisis for local arts, cultural, and youth-serving organizations. The public health requirements for safely operating these programs present numerous challenges to nonprofit financial models and affect the design, nature, and scale of youth and arts/culture programs.

Considering these challenges and because of the vital role played by these nonprofits, the Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors approved $2 million in CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Funds specifically for county nonprofit organizations providing arts, cultural, and/or youth services and programs.
