2015 • 2 years • Chicago Commitment

The Prince Charitable Trusts is a family foundation with giving programs in Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Rhode Island. It has been a strong supporter of the arts in Chicago since its inception in 1947, and also awards grants in environment, health, emergency services, early childhood care, and philanthropy. For 12 years, Prince has been a partner to the MacArthur Foundation in its grantmaking, supporting 45 – 50 mid-sized arts and culture organizations (with budgets between $500,000 and $2 million) in Chicago. In the course of its work, Prince has identified needs beyond general operating support that are commonly experienced by successful organizations. One of those needs is improved financial management, a critical skill that contributes to an organization’s long-term operational health. This grant supports up to eight grants which will assist mid-sized arts organizations in the MacArthur/Prince portfolio in strengthening their financial management practices.

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.
