Arts for All
The Arts for All grant initiative, of the Greater Harrisburg Community Foundation, a regional foundation of The Foundation for Enhancing Communities, is a unique funding opportunity to improve the efficiency of arts grant funding and increase the overall impact of grant funding for arts programming in our communities.
This arts focused grant opportunity brings together a collection of funds intended only to support arts & cultural organizations within our five and one half county region. Arts & Cultural programs reflect the “soul” of the community and its surroundings working to cultivate a cultural identity by setting the community apart and attracting people to its uniqueness. Arts and cultural offerings help express a community’s values and creates an elevated sense of awareness for community members and visitors. When arts and culture interweave in the fabric of a community, it helps cities attract tourists, diverse talent, brings about innovation and grows the economy.
Arts & Cultural programs enhance our community in the following ways:
- Promote Interaction in Public Space
- Increase Civic Participation Through Celebrations
- Engage Youth in the Community
- Promote the Power and Preservation of Place
- Broaden Participation in the Civic Agenda
Organizations interested in applying for Arts for All Grants can get more information on our grants overview page.
