Celebrating 75 Years in the City of Artists

We’re proud to have been a part of supporting artists and arts organizations in Louisville for nearly 75 years, and we have some big plans for the next 75.

At Fund for the Arts, we believe art is a right, not a privilege. Your donation today supports Fund for the Arts’ vision of a healthy and vibrant community where everyone embraces the art that exists in our lives every day, everyone contributes to the well-being of our arts community, and it is understood that everyone belongs to the arts community.  


Major Initiatives

Arts in Institutions

The original Fund for the Arts initiative, designed to invest in nonprofit arts organizations via the Sustaining Impact Grants, which provide unrestricted, operating support  to Greater Louisville nonprofit arts organizations that ensure the organizations’ ongoing capacity to drive community impact.

Arts in Learning

We believe learning through art can happen at any age, anywhere, so we support investments in curriculum-based arts programs in schools and other learning environments, expanding access to arts, and learning through arts, for all students.

Arts in Neighborhoods

Arts in Neighborhoods supports programming and funding for multigenerational, multi-disciplinary residencies, projects, and events. This initiative also includes our latest funding opportunity: the Community Event Mini-Grant, for those looking to host free, multigenerational events with an artistic element in their neighborhoods.
