Arts for All Partnership

The Arts for All Partnership is a partnership begun in 2015 between the Cultural Enrichment Fund (CEF) and the Greater Harrisburg Foundation, a regional foundation of The Foundation for Enhancing Communities (TFEC).  This unique collaborative funding initiative aims to improve the efficiency of arts grant funding and increase the overall impact of grant funding for arts programming in our communities.

The Arts for All Partnership will provide program grants to local nonprofit organizations that conduct arts and cultural programming. Arts for All Partnership grants will increase access to the arts in the capital region by funding free public performances for families, ticket subsidy programs that fill houses, innovative programs that engage and build young audiences and educational outreach programs. Priority will be given to programs that increase arts engagement and access among diverse audiences, underserved and/or economically disadvantaged communities.

In addition, the Arts for All Partnership will further each organization’s vision of ensuring the existence of a vibrant and diverse arts community in the capital region – an arts community which is accessible to all residents.

Organizations interested in applying for the Arts for All Partnership Grants can get more information on our grants overview page.
