Every year, The Masterwork Music and Arts Foundation issues a number of Community Grants to organizations or individuals striving for excellence in the arts. This year, our Board has refined the criteria and expanded our offerings. For the 2022-2023 Community Grant season, we’ll be giving out five grants. Two grants will be given at the $1,000 level, with one going to a Theater Arts program. Three grants will be given at the $500 level. Artists and Arts Organizations in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut should apply.

Grant criteria:

• We’re looking for the best fine arts projects in music, dance, the visual arts, and nonprofit theatrical productions that engage the community.
• Volunteer involvement is an important factor. Please explain how volunteers will be engaged for your project.
• Individual artists and arts organizations based in NY, NJ and CT should apply.
• Works that illustrate a commitment to excellence in the arts -- either through theme or by design -- will receive greater consideration.
• Note that this award is not intended to cover operating expenses or support a fundraising initiative.
• 2021 Community Grant Awardees should not apply.
• Applicants should first email masterworkarts@gmail.com for an official form. Submit the completed form to masterworkarts@gmail.com by midnight on Friday, June 17, 2022.
• Applicants should identify how The Masterwork Music and Art Foundation will be recognized in relation to the work.

Awardees will be notified the week of June 26, 2022.
