About FAB

Who is FAB?

Funding Arts Broward, Inc. (FAB) was formed in the summer of 2003, by a group of dynamic women who came together to form FAB in response to a growing concern about significant cuts in government funding to the arts.

Our objective is to enrich the Broward County arts community by funding visual and performing arts programs that meet eligibility requirements and present high quality programs to the public.

FAB’s goal is to create a sustainable, expanding pool of monies to award as grants to eligible non-profit arts organizations. Each individual FAB member contributes a minimum of $1,200 annually, each couple at least $1,800 and young adults (under 40), $600, 100% of which goes into our annual funding pool. Our corporate partners also contribute significantly to the funding pool. All FAB programs are carried out by our volunteer members.

To educate the members and the greater community, FAB hosts luncheons for members and their guests. These luncheons feature informative  presentations on a wide spectrum of topics, trends, and issues related to the visual and performing arts and frequently feature FAB grantees. These popular luncheons give members an opportunity to come together, share their knowledge, and stay active in the local arts scene.

All FAB members share a commitment to support the needs of the local arts community. They share a common belief that art and culture in contemporary society transcend our differences and bring us together in celebration of the human spirit.

Grant Process

A competitive annual grant process awards grants to nonprofit, visual, music, and performing arts organizations that present high quality programs in Broward County and meet the FAB eligibility requirements.

Grant finalists are selected through a rigorous screening process by member volunteer screening teams.  These screening teams are made up FAB members who volunteer their services as screeners. FAB provides training in grant evaluation to its volunteers, so previous experience is not necessary.

At the conclusion of the screening process, grant recipients are determined by a majority vote of the members.
