Organization Grants

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 in the broadest sense. We support a diverse 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. We support a diverse range of artistic disciplines and forms, created in a variety of contexts and for different audiences. 

Innovation/Risk: We support artists and organizations that push the boundaries of their respective disciplines, and applaud unconventional approaches to solving problems.

Humility: We support artists and organizations whose work serves a higher or larger purpose, be that social or artistic, beyond ego gratification or material success and are thoughtful about the impact they hope their work will have in the world. We work for artists (rather than the reverse) and artists and organizations are the best authorities to define their needs and challenges.
