Jerome Foundation Announces Grants Totaling Over $4 Million to Arts Orgs in Minnesota and NYC
The Jerome Foundation announced the inaugural recipients of its Organization Grants Program. The program supports nonprofit arts organizations based in the state of Minnesota and the five boroughs of New York City across artistic disciplines that offer programs for research, development, and production of new work by early career vocational artists.
Full applications were assessed by separate discipline-specific peer panels composed of leaders in the field from Minnesota and New York City. According to the foundation, this marks the first time the Jerome Foundation worked with peer panels to determine its organizational grants roster.
“This is a wonderful cohort of arts organizations offering important programs and services for early career artists. Our only regret is that the limits of our resources did not allow us to fund every program of merit,” said Ben Cameron, president of the Jerome Foundation, on the 84 grants totaling $4,159,500.
