The Jerome Foundation, offers grants to not-for-profit arts organizations and to fiscal sponsors applying on behalf of artists for the creation, development, and production of new works by emerging artists in New York City and Minnesota.
Diversity: We consciously embrace diversity as a core value, affirming our intent to be inclusive in supporting a wide range of artistic disciplines, operating in and from a wide range of traditions, created in a wide variety of contexts and intended for different audiences. The Foundation consciously works to insure that we are supporting a wide range of artists and organizations, including but not limited to those of diverse cultures, races, sexual identities, genders, generations, aesthetics, points of view, physical abilities, and missions.
Innovation/Risk: We support artists and organizations that push at the boundaries of their respective disciplines, and applaud unconventional approaches to solving problems and making progress.
Humility: We support artists and organizations that recognize their work serves a higher or larger purpose, be that social or artistic, beyond ego gratification, and that are thoughtful about the impact that they hope their work will have in a larger context or world.
The Foundation will announce the new program grants and application timelines in May 2017.
We will unveil our new guidelines and applications for organizations at a webinar on Thursday, May 25, at 12 noon Central/1 pm Eastern.
