 PLEASE SIGN UP FOR OUR NEWSLETTER FOR INFORMATION ABOUT OUR NEXT APPLICATION PERIOD. 

The Bartol Foundation makes grants to Philadelphia arts organizations and/or projects that focus on arts education programs by and for the communities they serve through:

  • Strong arts education teaching practices (in any art form) that provide in-depth, hands-on creative experiences and supportive spaces for your participants (of any age);

  • Curriculum and content that is relevant to and respectful of your participants’ cultures and identities; and,

  • An alignment between the demographics of the board|staff|teaching artists of your organization and the people you are engaging to ensure that you understand the needs and perspective of your community.

Our goal is to support equitable access to creative art-making experiences in deep, relevant and joyful ways. Bartol Foundation grants are specifically directed to support work by and for communities that have been historically under-resourced due to racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ageism, ableism, and other systems of oppression.  We see and support the wealth of arts and arts educators who live within these communities.

Note that we support programs for all people, not just young people, as long as they are actively involved in the creative and artistic process. We do not support one-time or short-term presentations, performances, exhibitions or programs. If you are unsure if your program is a fit, please email us before setting up a site visit.

In order to be considered for a Bartol Foundation grant, you must meet our eligibility requirements and request a site visit. A site visit must be completed before you submit your application.
