Founded in 2017, Artist Grant is a new venture that aims to support and fund artists. All too often, society expects artists to work for free when other types of professionals receive fair compensation for their work. Artists deserve fair compensation. To that end, our charitable organization funds the efforts of artists to continue their important work and contributions to society. We provide a modest competitive grant of $500 to one artist every quarter. 

We have no sponsors but are a small group of individuals using our own personal wealth, time, energy, and efforts to fulfill Artist Grant's mission. The team functions as the grant selection jury. We come from different creative backgrounds, so we do not have artistic style or media preferences. We're interested in and will consider applications from all visual artists. We look forward to seeing your work!
