Description
Founded in 2017, Artist Grant is a new venture that aims to support and fund artists. To that end, this charitable organization funds the efforts of artists to continue their important work and contributions to society, providing a modest competitive grant of $500 to one artist every quarter.

Artist Grant
All too often, society expects artists to work for free. Artists deserve fair compensation. Our charitable organization has supported artists since 2017 by providing a modest competitive grant of $500 to one artist every quarter, and $100 each to 2nd and 3rd place recipients.

We are a small group of individuals from different creative backgrounds, committed to fulfilling Artist Grant's mission. Our group functions as the initial grant selection jury, and former grant recipients serve as guest jurors for the final selection round.
