Funding Arts Broward, Inc. (FAB!) is dedicated to the cultural enrichment of Broward County. By supporting visual and performing arts organizations, our goal is to fund creative and innovative performances, productions, and exhibitions that will stimulate the minds and capture the imaginations of our community’s diverse audiences. We encourage the development of new projects and programs that engage audiences and heighten their appreciation of the arts.
A competitive annual grant process awards grants to Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade County-based nonprofit, visual, music, and performing arts organizations that present high quality programs in Broward County and meet the FAB! eligibility requirements.
Grant finalists are selected through a rigorous screening process by member volunteer screening teams. Screening committees have often been organized according to disciplines of visual, music, and performing art. Our organization provides training in grant evaluation to its members. Grant recipients are determined by a majority vote of the members by written ballot.
FAB! 2021 Grants to eligible organizations will be awarded in amounts as follows:
· Organizations with annual budgets over $1 million may be awarded a FAB! 2021 Grant for $5,000 to $15, 000.
· Organizations with annual budgets under $1 million may be awarded a FAB! 2021 Grant for $5,000 to $10,000.
· Organizations with annual revenue under $100,000 may be awarded a FAB! 2021 Grant for $2,000 to $5,000. Recognizing that small and emerging arts organizations are often the breeding ground for new and innovative programs, the Board of Directors of Funding Arts Broward has created this third tier for our FAB! 2021 Grants cycle.
IMPORTANT: Submissions for FAB! 2021 Grants must be specific project/program oriented, so applicants must describe in detail, the specific project or program, for which they are applying for funding. The FAB! 2021 Grants Committee will not consider entire seasons for funding, even when the entire season is a cohesive series of programs.
Remember, applications will be considered based on your organization’s compliance with the FAB! 2021 Grant Application Instructions, found on our website: www.fundingartsbroward.org, and the quality and community impact of your program/project. Eligibility requirements for FAB! 2021 Grants are also found at www.fundingartsbroward.org.
