Grants of up to $10,000 to Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana nonprofit organizations in eligible locations for a wide range of arts and cultural heritage projects. New applicants are required to contact the funding source prior to submitting an application. Funding is intended to support projects that promote access, equity, and inclusiveness. Applicants should be based in the greater Cincinnati-Middletown area (OH-KY-IN MSA).
The purpose of the Catalyzing Impact Grant Program is to encourage a breadth of programming through arts and cultural heritage projects that support the goals of ArtsWave’s Blueprint for Collective Action. ArtsWave believes that strong arts create strong communities and actively seeks to promote access, equity, and inclusiveness in its grantmaking.
Eligible Requests: The Catalyzing Impact Grant Program provides funding for arts or cultural heritage projects that support one of the five goals of ArtsWave’s Blueprint for Collective Action. A project is defined as a specific, connected set of activities with a start date, end date, and explicit goals and objectives (see Appendix B for more application definitions). Projects with multiple components and/or event dates must show a cohesive theme that ties the entire project together.
Eligible project requests may include a new project or an existing project that demonstrates an expansion of impact.
Receiving a Catalyzing Impact grant is a competitive process. Organizations proposing existing projects that have been funded through the Catalyzing Impact program in previous fiscal years should be prepared to demonstrate how the proposed work is expanding impact.
Examples may include:
