IACA Non-Profit Mini-Grant Program
Grants to 501c3 Non-Profit Organizations for Programming, Services or Education Related to the Arts

We also have a mini-grant program for artists, click here to learn more.

Grant Program:
We believe the arts are essential to the health and vitality of our communities and our nation. We recognize that there is a funding need amongst non-profit organizations, and that receiving support can sometimes be a complicated process. Our application process has been made simple. 

IACA Mini-Grants for organizations generally average $350 and are intended to assist with the following: artistic programs that engage the community; projects that involve educating youth in the arts; services for artists; leadership training that will increase an arts organization's strength and capacity for the long term, etc.This is our way of planting seeds that we believe will continue to grow. Please Note: Funds may not be used for capital projects, equipment or for regranting purposes. 

If your organization is passionate about serving others through the arts, apply today! You may be selected to receive funding. We are grateful for the work that you do. We encourage you to keep making a difference. Art changes lives in many ways.
