Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation (MAAF)
Grants starting at $500 to Delaware, West Virginia, Washington, DC, and U.S. Virgin Islands nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and IHEs to host performances by touring artists and ensembles, particularly in underserved communities. Funding is intended for performances at small and mid-size venues that enhance meaningful exchanges between touring artists and a presenter’s community.
The initiative is designed to support performing arts engagements and related activities that would not otherwise be possible, particularly in communities underserved by the arts (defined for the purposes of this program as populations whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by geography, ethnicity, age, economics, or disability).
