Arts Foundation Grants & Sponsorships

Our Grants and Sponsorships provide direct funding for individual artists, arts organizations, and community-based arts projects throughout Tucson, Pima County, and Southern Arizona.

Over the past eight years, we have provided more than $1,650,000 to approximately 400 artists, arts organizations, community groups, and neighborhoods. This money has allowed working artists to pursue their passions, local neighborhoods to animate shared space, and arts organizations to continue to open their doors to the community and provide a wide range of programming.

Note that all grantees must abide by Fair Labor Standards.
