Kresge Foundation shifting focus to cultural facilities renovation & repair projects
The Kresge Foundation in Troy, Michigan, has announced a new national strategy for its arts and culture program to help foster the long-term financial stability of arts groups.
The foundation's arts and culture grantmaking is focused on three areas: institutional capitalization, artists' support services, and arts and community building.
Under the new strategy, institutional capitalization activities will include investments in cultural facilities and building reserves funds, with a focus on renovation and repair projects. (The foundation will no longer consider traditional facilities-capital challenge grants.)
The foundation is accepting pre-application e-mails for facility investments and building reserves grants, with a call for applications scheduled for the fall. Deadline for pre-application emails: Monday, May 17, 2010.
