The Pierre And Tana Matisse Foundation
The Foundation awards program specific grants to nonprofits serving the five boroughs of New York City. The Foundation awards three types of grants: Arts and Arts Education grants, Arts Education Schools Choose grants, and Arts Education Impact grants. Grants for Arts and Arts Education are awarded to organizations committed to making the arts a solid and significant part of the education process. Grants are also awarded to organizations and institutions that provide the public with valuable cultural experiences. Arts Education Schools Choose grants help New York City public middle and high schools counter diminished funding for arts education programs. This grant program supports initiatives by underfunded public school principals to integrated the arts into regular student curriculum, and to give these principals an extended window to measure the effects of their arts programs on their school’s population. The Schools Choose grants are by invitation only. Arts Education Impact grants are awarded to organizations that help develop and implement arts education programs in New York City schools and communities. These Impact Grants are given on a competitive basis and are offered for a maximum of five years. These grants are also by invitation only. The Arts and Arts Education Program grants are awarded in two cycles each year. Each cycle begins with an 8- to 10-week open window for letter of inquiry submissions. Additional information including the deadline dates can be found on the Web site.
