Grants for Arts Organizations and Individual Projects

2017 Grants

2018 Grants

Lunenburg Foundation for the Arts provides grants to arts organizations, as well as to both emerging and established artists across the full range of artistic media: theatre, visual arts, dance, writing, music, fine craft, as well as multi-media and inter-disciplinary projects.



Applications are awarded twice yearly. Fully completed applications must be received no later than May 30 and October 30 annually. Applications are reviewed and awarded within one month of these deadlines.


A panel appointed by the Lunenburg Foundation for the Arts assesses all applications. Grants are awarded based on artistic merit, financial need, and benefit to the arts in Lunenburg County. While we welcome all applications, funds are limited and we may not be able to fund all requests. Unsuccessful applicants will be advised if they are eligible to re-apply.


Applications MUST include:

Please note: A written follow-up report, successes and challenges, is required within two months of the conclusion/completion of the project. Proof of appropriate use of funds is required; actual budget figures must be added to the budget submitted with the original application.
