Funding Focus Areas

Grantmakers in the Arts focuses its work in four primary areas: racial equity, arts education, capitalization, and support for individual artists. These represent the areas in which the majority of GIA members direct their arts funding. GIA supports funders by offering programs and resources in these four areas as well as other areas important to arts funders such as creative aging, emergency readiness, juvenile justice, and arts funding at the intersection of other issue areas. This information is gathered in our arts funding topic pages, which you can access using the links to the left.
