Shaping grants to better serve the people

Grants should be available to those who need them. That’s why United Arts invites actual members of the community to help set the criteria for how art grants are awarded. We listen to their needs so we can bring aid where it’s needed. To do this, we survey recipients, collaborate with donors, and bring more minority representation into board groups and grant committees.

You can help — sign up to volunteer on a Grants Panel!
