About

About

Innovate Grant is a new initiative that supports artists and photographers through quarterly grants.

We believe that new ideas come from sparks of inspiration and aim to provide just that, access to small and mighty bursts of financial support so that you can focus on making your important and innovative work.
Innovate Grant was created out of the frustration of applying to grants with time-consuming requirements. These lengthy applications took valuable time and energy away from making new work. Countless hours were always sacrificed in either writing artist statements, crafting project proposals and getting letters of recommendation.
We believe that time is one of the most valuable components to fostering creativity and innovation. Our aim is to provide the time you need to be fully immersed in your ideas and in creating your work.
Keeping the grant process simple enables us to continue to support you on your important journey of creation, inspiration, and innovation.

How it Works

Innovate Grant distributes (2) $550.00 grants each quarter, to one Visual Artist and one Photographer. Grant cycles are in the Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.

We believe your work should speak for itself and our grant application reflects that. All that we require is your:

— Name
— Email
— Website (Optional)
— Grant Category
— 3-5 Images of Your Work

Winners will be featured on our website and will receive a one time unrestricted $550.00 grant. All applicants retain the right to the work they submit. 

The application fee of $25 helps offset our administrative costs, enabling us to continue to support artists and the creation of their innovative work.

Summer Cycle Deadline:
Tuesday, September 3, 2019
