Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $30,000 to USA nonprofit organizations and IHEs for productions and presentations that focus on the field of architecture. Funding may be used for projects including public programs, new media projects, publications, films, exhibitions, installations, and conferences/lectures. Grant funding is intended to assist organizations with the production-related expenses that are necessary to take a project from conceptualization to realization and public presentation.

The Foundation's priorities are to:

  • Assist with the production and presentation of significant programs about architecture and the designed environment in order to promote dialogue, raise awareness, and develop new and wider audiences.
  • Support them in their effort to take risks in programming and create opportunities for experimentation.
  • Recognize the vital role they play in providing individuals with a public forum in which to present their work.
  • Help them to realize projects that would otherwise not be possible without support.

Overall the Foundation is most interested in opportunities which enable it to provide critical support at key points in the development of a project or career.

Project criteria:

  • Originality: the project demonstrates an innovative, challenging idea; critical, independent thinking; advanced scholarship; a new or experimental approach
  • Potential for impact: the project makes a meaningful contribution to discourse and/or to the field; expands knowledge; is a catalyst for future inquiry; raises awareness of an understudied issue; promotes diversity in subject matter, participants, and audience
  • Feasibility: the project has clear and realistic goals, timeframe, work plan, and budget
  • Capacity: applicant possesses strong qualifications and/or knowledge; demonstrates ability to carry out the project successfully; has access to necessary resources outside of the grant request

Estimated Size of Grant:

Production and Presentation Grants to organizations do not exceed $30,000 and are likely to be much less. Given the demand for funding, the Graham Foundation is not always able to fund grantees at the full request amount.

Term of Contract:

Grant period: Production and Presentation Grants must be completed within two years of the project start date.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grantmaking focuses on organizations in the United States, however, the Foundation does make a small percentage of international grants. Please note the Foundation requires that final projects be disseminated in English.

Grants to Organizations:
- Organizations are eligible to apply for Production and Presentation Grants.
- 501(c)(3) tax exempt organizations are eligible for funding. Under some circumstances the Foundation will make grants to other entities when there is clear evidence that the public interest will be served, for example, in the case of a publisher or an emerging organization that does not yet have tax exempt status.
- An organization or academic department/unit may only apply for one grant per year. (In the case of large institutions with multiple departments, a subsidiary department/unit may apply for one grant per year. For example, an academic department/unit at a university may apply for one grant per year.)
- Applicants who have received prior Graham Foundation support must have satisfied all grant requirements before applying again.

Ineligible Costs:
- Endowment
- General operating expenses
- Capital projects
- Scholarship aid or work in pursuit of an academic degree (advanced doctoral candidates are eligible to apply for the Carter Manny Award)
- Work focused on K-12 curriculum or learning and/or intended for K-12 audiences
