Grants to Prince Foundation/Prince Charitable Trusts

  • $115,000Active Strategy

    2014 (Duration 1 year)

    Arts & Culture in Chicago

    CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — The Prince Charitable Trusts is a family foundation with giving programs in Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Rhode Island focused on the arts in Chicago, as well as the environment, health, emergency services, early childhood care, and philanthropy. Prince manages the MacArthur Fund at Prince, providing support to arts and culture institutions with budgets between $500,000 and $2 million. This grant will support up to five capacity building grants which will assist mid-sized arts organizations in this portfolio that are experiencing staff leadership transition. These organizations are strong artistically but often have underinvested in their administrative functions. The goal of these one-year grants is to give organizations the means to stabilize their operations and make well-informed decisions about their future.
