The Foundation is now accepting applications for its Creative Engagement Grant Program. The grant program, now in its second year, is one element of the Creative Worcester Initiative, which the Foundation launched last year in partnership with the Barr Foundation and its Creative Commonwealth Initiative.

Through the Creative Engagement Grant Program, the Foundation will direct financial and knowledge resources to empower grantees to develop innovative ways to increase engagement with diverse communities that represent Worcester's changing demographics, while at the same time building their capacity to more meaningfully serve the community.

To be considered, applicants must be established nonprofit organizations focused exclusively on arts & culture that serve the City of Worcester and its contiguous communities. Interested organizations should review the grant guidelines for complete details; applications must be received online by March 15, 2019. For more information, please contact Jonathan Cohen at jcohen@greaterworcester.org or 508-755-0980.
