Thanks to an anonymous donor, Arts Midwest is expanding funding available through the United States Regional Arts Resilience Fund to smaller organizations in the Midwest. These new funds will award grants of $10,000 to $50,000 to organizations with budgets between $50,000-$249,999 (pre-COVID19), prioritizing arts and cultural organizations in rural communities and organizations led by and/or serving indigenous people and people of color.
Anyone may nominate an arts organization to receive an award by filling out a simple online form before 7pm CDT (8pm EDT) on Friday, August 28.
