Request a Grant Writer

Grants of $10,000 to California nonprofit organizations, schools, and government agencies for performing arts programs and projects in eligible regions. Program areas include dance, opera, music, theater, stagecraft, musical theater, makeup, and costume. Funded projects should benefit Gilroy, California.

In reviewing grant applications, the Foundation gives consideration to:

  • Programs that would contribute to Performing Arts.
  • The ability of the organization or program to become self-supporting after initial seed money or interim funding.
  • The extent of local volunteer involvement and support for the organization’s board.
  • The organization’s fiscal responsibility and management qualifications.

In authorizing grants, the Foundation gives preference to projects of the following types, whether undertaken by existing agencies or new agencies.

  1. Projects or programs aimed at providing needed facilities or services, for which public funds are either not available or not sufficient and the Foundation's contribution, either by itself or in conjunction with other private support, would have a significant impact.
  2. Projects that will provide leverage in an agency's ability to secure other funds.
  3. Projects that, in responding to known community needs, are designed to coordinate or consolidate community services in an effort to reduce overhead expenses, increase efficiency or eliminate unnecessary duplication.

Consideration may be given to grant applications from organizations that have a history of contributing to the civic, cultural, educational, health, artistic enrichment or recreational needs of Gilroy and its surrounding area, but whose grant application may not otherwise meet the criteria of the Gilroy Foundation.
