ARTSFUND grants

Overview

The Alameda County Arts Commission provides financial support to Alameda County nonprofit arts organizations each year through the Alameda County Supervisors’ ARTSFUND Grants Program. The Grants Program supports all art forms – dance, literature, media arts, music, theater, visual arts, traditional arts and crafts, and multidisciplinary programs. Support for the Grants Program is provided by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors, by citizen contributions to Alameda County’s ARTSFUND, and by County employee contributions through the Foundation for the Arts in Alameda County.

The general goals of the Alameda County Supervisors' ARTSFUND Grants Program are to:

  • Promote the development of Alameda County as a center for arts innovation and excellence;
  • Increase high quality arts programs throughout the County;
  • Promote Alameda County arts organizations with unique programs, organizations in communities that have relatively few established arts programs, organizations that are newly formed and/or small and mid-sized;
  • Encourage participation by Alameda County's diverse populations and under-represented peoples in all aspects of arts and cultural activities within the County;
  • Involve County residents as participants and audiences of County arts programs
