Funding Arts Network is proud to announce the 19 visual and performing arts programs selected to be funded in the 2018-19 grant cycle.
Thanks to contributions from our members, FAN is able to award $250,000 this year. These grants will bring the total amount that FAN has funded since its founding in 1996 to over $4 million.
Co-Vice Presidents for Grants Joan de Pontet and Paula Finkle led a team of about 50 screening captains and committee members in leading the process, and members voted on the final selections from a field of about 60 candidates.
