There’s no doubt that organizations and individuals will need more assistance in the coming year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Arts in Society partners have decided to respond to the health crisis by pivoting and expediting the regularly scheduled 2021 Arts in Society grant cycle. The program supports individuals and organizations who seek to implement projects that utilize the arts as an integral element in promoting social justice and community welfare, including, but not limited to projects responding to coronavirus-related needs.

Bonfils-Stanton Foundation is happy to be a partner in the program along with RedLine Denver, Colorado Creative Industries, Hemera Foundation, Colorado Health Foundation and SCFD. “Since it launched in 2017, Arts in Society has played a critical role in funding important, compelling and powerful projects from across Colorado,” says Gary Steuer, Bonfils-Stanton Foundation President and CEO. “As the Arts in Society application process opens up for the 2021 grant cycle, we understand the importance the funding will have on organizations and individuals as they emerge from the coronavirus pandemic.”

Arts in Society has distributed over $2 million since inception to fund 91 projects across Colorado that incorporate arts and creativity in addressing our communities’ most important problems.
