Arts Council for Long Beach
Donate now to the “Creative Communities Arts Fund” and support our microgrant program. Microgrants are awarded monthly and available year-round until funding is depleted for the fiscal year. Projects must be free, open to the public and benefit Long Beach residents. Worthy projects will support community representation and cultural respect, encourage cultural diversity and/or enhance undeserved communities, neighborhoods or populations of Long Beach. Artists who are looking for professional development to enhance an organization’s operations or their ability to serve the Long Beach residents may also apply for a microgrant.
Since the Arts Council for Long Beach was founded 40 years ago – on September 22, 1976 – the nonprofit organization has funded hundreds of artists, organizations and education programs. It has advocated for increased arts funding in addition to promoting the city’s arts and culture. Currently, we deliver arts education to thousands of schoolchildren, place college students in internships, connect artists to opportunities within and outside of Long Beach, convene discussions and celebrations about art and much more. Since 2000, the Arts Council has granted more than $13 million to Long Beach artists, organizations and community projects, and through arts education programs, reached more than 36,000 Long Beach Unified School District youth. Serving Long Beach’s flourishing arts and cultural scene is a tall – and fun – order, therefore, we are committed to growing community partnerships by increasing our microgrant funding.
