Our Arts & Culture Learning Partnership Grant require a one-to-one match. We encourage you to seek out funds from other state and local, and national agencies, such as: 

The Arizona Commission on the Arts provides a variety of funding opportunities that enable schools, organizations and community groups to carry out projects and to maintain ongoing, high quality public arts programming.




The Arizona Community Foundation has grant cycles which are announced via e-mail and other media outlets. Staff members conduct free workshops statewide in advance of grant cycles to assist prospective applicants in preparing their proposals. 




The mission of the Arizona Department of Education Arts Education Office is to provide support to Arts educators, classroom teachers, school and district administrators, and Arts stakeholders – including Arts and education organizations, community groups, and service organizations – so that every student has the opportunity to experience the power and beauty of the Arts, and the joy, creativity, and intellectual stimulation that instruction in the Arts provides.



The Virginia G. Piper Trust’s grantmaking focuses on Virginia Galvin Piper’s commitment to improving the quality of life for residents of Maricopa County. Piper Trust conducts rigorous competitive grantmaking. Program, evaluation, communication and finance staff work closely with potential grantees to ensure that projects are focused, meet the Trust’s funding guidelines and address longer term needs.




Established by Congress in 1965, the National Endowment for the Arts is the independent federal agency whose funding and support gives Americans the opportunity to participate in the arts, exercise their imaginations, and develop their creative capacities. Through partnerships with state arts agencies, local leaders, other federal agencies, and the philanthropic sector, the NEA supports arts learning, affirms and celebrates America’s rich and diverse cultural heritage, and extends its work to promote equal access to the arts in every community across America.



U.S. Department of Education 's mission is to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access.
