Davis Arts & Culture Grant
The Davis Arts & Culture Grant is a one-time grant program, offered by the Yolo Community Foundation and funded by the City of Davis with funding from the American Rescue Plan Act. The goal of the grant is to stabilize the City’s nonprofit arts & culture sector, which saw a significant negative economic impact due to the pandemic. The grant will therefore take the form of unrestricted general operating support, with the intention of providing financial relief to eligible nonprofits, to help them on the path back to financial sustainability. As part of this grant program, the Yolo Community Foundation will also provide non-financial capacity building support (e.g., training programs) that serves the same objective. More information about the capacity building programming will be available once the grants are allocated. Grants range from $5,000 to $40,000.
