Building for Equity: Capacity Building Grants
This Deadline Expired: Friday, May 28, 2021
Is your organization looking to secure, acquire, or improve a cultural space or historic place? This funding can help you meet your long-term facility needs.
The Building for Equity: Capacity Building Grants invest in an organization’s development, allowing them to secure their long-term facility needs. These grants of up to $25,000 may fund a wide-range of activities that increase an organization’s capability to advocate and plan for, fundraise for, lease, acquire, repair, remodel, and/or construct space suitable for their programming in a sustainable, long-term manner. This fund prioritizes organizations located in, and providing services to, historically underserved communities within King County.
All grants are funded through a competitive process, carefully evaluating each application.
For this particular grant, 4Culture looks to see how well your project shows the following:
-Quality and qualifications: The reasoning behind your proposed capacity building activities, how they relate to your organization’s ability to secure or improve facilities in the future, and how central they are to your mission and the services your organization provides to King County residents and visitors.
-Priorities: Organizations that are located in and that prioritize serving historically marginalized communities or audiences outside of Seattle will be prioritized if all above criteria are met.
-Feasibility: Your ability to complete the work described in your request with the resources and time available to your organization.
-Impact: The impact the work described will have on your organization’s future sustainability and ability to improve or secure its facilities. How will the community benefit from these investments.
