2021 Bartol Foundation Application Now Open

Ahora podrá aplicar a la beca de la Fundación Bartol en Español.

Like all of you, we at the Bartol Foundation have been navigating the weight and sadness of the past year.  We appreciate your patience as we thought about how to adjust our grant process and application to make it more equitable and streamlined.  The application is now open for our upcoming deadline on Monday, May 3 at 5:00pm.

Eligibility:  Our eligibility requirements remain the same.  You must be:

  • A non-profit organization with a current 501(c)(3) status or have an affiliation with a nonprofit fiscal sponsor.
  • Presenting programs focused on community-based, hands-on, in-depth arts education.
  • Presenting programs within the City of Philadelphia.

Check out additional requirements here first before you start the application process. 

What’s the Same? What’s Different?

Mandatory Check-In/Virtual Site Visit:  Anyone applying for a grant at this deadline needs to arrange a mandatory check-in call or virtual site visit by going on this form by Friday, April 2.  The check-in must be completed by May 1, 2021.  You can read more about this here.

Apply in Spanish:  You are now able to apply in Spanish. While we haven’t been able to translate our entire website yet, you will see the option of applying in English or Spanish when you get ready to access the online application.  If you have questions, you can email bfbrandt@bartol.org and to be connected with a Bartol board member who can answer your questions in Spanish.

What Can You Apply For? We encourage you to apply for general operating support.  This year we have two categories.  If all of your programs focus on arts education, you can apply for regular general operating support.  If arts education programs are one component of your organization (for example, you also present performances or exhibitions), you can now apply for general operating support for your arts education programs. This will enable you to outline your general arts education programs if you are unsure of specifics for 2021-22 due to ongoing COVID restrictions. You can also still apply for a specific project.

Application Questions:  We have revised the application to take into account that the last year has been unprecedented and the coming year is still uncertain.  We want to hear about how your programs have adapted to COVID restrictions and what you project to do in the coming year based on what you know now.  We are open to hearing what you think you might do if your programs remain virtual, resume in person, or are presented in a hybrid of both. 

What if our program changes after we apply? Do your best to project what your programs will look like and if you receive a grant, we remain open to adapting our funds to your needs as the year unfolds.  Applying for general operating support will give you the most flexibility but we will also be ready to hear if your project changes as the year evolves.

A reminder that the application is due Monday, May 3, 2021 by 5 pm.

START YOUR APPLICATION PROCESS HERE!

As always, reach out with any questions to bfbrandt@bartol.org.

Thank you for all you do.
