ArtsMatch is a matching grant opportunity for cultural providers (individuals, artists, cultural groups, organizations, etc) to reach new audiences and invest in innovation.

How does it work?

  • Cultural providers submit applications for an innovative, arts-based project addressing the ArtsMatch theme
  • Selected applicants promote their project and generate support through an online fundraising page on the FFTA website
  • FFTA will match every dollar raised by the cultural provider up to a specific amount.
