GRANT APPLICATION GUIDELINES

2021 grant applications are now being accepted.  

  • All grant request applications must be submitted by January 15, 2021. No faxes or hand deliveries, please.
  • Submissions should include only what is requested. No extra information (notebooks, tapes, brochures, etc.) is allowed.
  • Applicant/Agency must be a 501(c)(3).
  • Funding must service Northeast Tarrant County.
  • Funding priorities: Children, women, and families.
  • Requests will not be considered that fund job positions, salaries, fundraisers, administrative or office expenses, volunteer or
    employee recognition trips, award ceremonies, or marketing materials.
  • Applicant must provide by electronic attachment a copy of the IRS Charitable Exemption letter.
  • Applicant must provide by electronic attachment a copy of the most recent 990 tax form.
  • Applicant must provide by electronic attachment copies of 2019, 2020, and proposed 2021 budgets, for both the organization
    at large and your proposed project. We strongly advise that you create a single PDF document containing all required budgets
    (one for the organization, and one for your project) and that you ensure any uploaded documents will print clearly. This
    accelerates the application and review process.
  • Applicant must provide a list of board members and their contact information, including phone numbers and email addresses.

    requires 2 volunteers for 3-4 hours.

Important Notes

The Art in the Square Executive Board will closely monitor and follow all COVID-19 related requirements as set forth by local, county, state, and federal health agencies. We are optimistic that it will be possible to have a festival in late April. The final decision will be made by the end of January 2021. If we are able to have a festival, it will most likely look different than those held in recent years and we anticipate the amount of money raised will be less. Please keep this in mind when requesting your grant.
Due to the number of applications we receive, we require you to carefully follow all guidelines to be eligible for consideration. Any applications that are not in compliance with these guidelines will not be reviewed.
Grant applications open in November and close on January 15. Grant selection and notification take place in February. The exact amount of each grant will be determined after the event in April. Checks will be mailed by the end of June.
Selected beneficiaries will be assigned six Art in the Square volunteer slots at the time of notification.
