Sustaining Impact Grants Purpose

The purpose of Sustaining Impact Grants is to provide mission-based operating support to charitable arts organizations whose programming supports the priorities of Imagine Greater Louisville 2020 in order to ensure the organization’s ongoing capacity to drive community impact.

Sustaining Impact Grants are designed to provide foundational operating support for established charitable arts organizations with a proven capacity to steward the financial investment of the Fund for the Arts and its nearly 20,000 donors.
