Scottsdale Arts awards community arts grants to 22 organizations

Scottsdale Arts has awarded $131,000 in community arts grants to 22 local organizations for the 2021–2022 fiscal year.

Of the 22 organizations receiving grants, 13 received the full amount requested.

All applicants to the program had to be 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts or cultural organizations that provide programs or activities within Scottsdale or for Scottsdale residents and have a three-year history of programming prior to the application deadline.

An all-volunteer committee of arts, community and business leaders reviewed the applications and made recommendations for funding to the Scottsdale Arts board of trustees. 

In 2020, Scottsdale Arts awarded $100,000 to 20 different organizations for general operating support and projects during the 2020–2021 fiscal year.

The Community Arts Grant Program is funded by the city of Scottsdale and administered by Scottsdale Arts through its management service agreement with the city. 

Scottsdale Arts is a nonprofit organization that includes Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale Public Art and Scottsdale Arts Learning and Innovation. This year, Scottsdale Arts contributed $40,000 of its own funds to the program.

Application dates for the 2022-2023 fiscal year grant cycle will be posted in May of 2022.
