Organizations are eligible to apply for Production and Presentation Grants.
501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations are eligible for funding. Under some circumstances we will make grants to other entities when there is clear evidence that the public interest will be served, for example, in the case of a publisher or an emerging organization that does not yet have tax-exempt status.
An organization or academic department/unit may only apply for one grant per year. (In the case of large institutions with multiple departments, a subsidiary department/unit may apply for one grant per year. For example, an academic department/unit at a university may apply for one grant per year.)
Applicants who have received prior Graham Foundation support must have satisfied all grant requirements before applying again.
