FAQ’s

Our organization performs the same programs in Broward and Miami-Dade. May we apply?
Yes, if your organization meets the eligibility criteria, then you may apply for that portion presented in Broward. When you prepare the budget pages, use only Broward expenses in the appropriate locations on the budget form.

Our program will begin in the fall of one year and finish in the spring of the next year. May we apply?
Yes, but FAB! will only consider funding that portion presented during the specific calendar year of the grant cycle. When preparing the budget pages, you should request funds only for the portion to be presented during that year.

What do you consider a “visual or performing arts” group?
We accept applications in four (4) categories: Dance, Theater, Music, Visual Arts (including film).

Our performances are really multi-disciplinary. We present musical theater works, but we also have a major dance component and use the visual arts as an integral part of our work. What should we do?
Select as your category ONE (1) discipline that you consider to be the most important focus of the program for which you request funding.

May we request funding in an arts area that is not a part of our mission (i.e. a visual arts organization applying for a concert series, or a music presenter applying for a visual arts exhibition)?
No. Your grant request must be in the area of your mission. However, funding is available for programs which are multi-disciplinary provided that one of the disciplines within the program for which funding being sought is within the discipline stated in your mission.

We are a not-for-profit organization. Although our primary mission is not presenting programs in the performing or visual arts, we have decided to present such a program next year. Would we be eligible for a grant?
No, you will be ineligible because your organization is not primarily involved in presenting visual or performing arts programs. However, you might suggest to performing group that it apply to us for a grant, if the eligibility requirements are met.

We are a support group for an arts organization. May we apply?
You may apply if you meet eligibility requirements, your mission includes performance or presentation to the public and the organization you support is not applying for a grant from us during this grant cycle. We will accept only one application from any organization or unit/division/support group thereof during a grant cycle.

We are a division of and/or affiliated with a college or university. May we apply?
No. However if the organization seeking FAB! funds is an American Association of Museums (AAM) accredited member that is part of a not-for-profit university in Broward County that will provide recurring cultural and exhibit programming; annually producing a full season of programs and exhibits and has an advisory board which governs the museum’s program activities and at least 50% of whom reside in Broward County, the organization may apply.
