Community Arts Endowment Fund

Grants are offered from pooled donations of art-lovers to support artists and new artistic works in Shasta and Siskiyou counties.

The Articipate Campaign that began in 2010 is now the Community Arts Endowment Fund at the Community Foundation of the North State. This Field of Interest fund essentially pools the donations of many to support the arts in our region today and forever. Through the power of endowment, a gift made to the fund today will continue to grow, allowing grants for the presentation and creation of “new artistic work” to be given in support of artists and art projects in perpetuity.The Fund awards grants primarily for the creation and public presentation of new work by artists and arts organizations in Shasta and Siskiyou counties. Fields supported by these grants may include but are not limited to: dance, theater, music, writing, sculpture, painting, photography, film, and graphic design.
