Each year, we are proud to award grants to arts and culture nonprofit organizations whose work strengthens our Philadelphia communities through the power of the arts. We also make micro-grants to individual teaching artists to support their work in communities. We believe in the power of the arts within our communities to engage, connect and educate, making access to the arts an essential part of every person’s life.
Each year we also choose one of our grant recipients to receive the additional George Bartol Arts Education award in recognition of outstanding arts education programs. This award was established in 2001, and is generously support by Mr. George Bartol’s children.
