Grant Application

Funding Arts Broward, Inc. (FAB) is dedicated to the cultural enrichment of Broward County. By supporting visual and performing arts organizations, our goal is to fund creative and innovative performances, productions, and exhibitions that will stimulate the minds and capture the imaginations of our community’s diverse audiences. We encourage the development of new projects and programs that engage audiences and heighten their appreciation of the arts. For the first time, FAB is offering Education Grants, dedicated to art appreciation and skill acquisition for grades K thru 12.

Grant Process

A competitive annual grant process awards grants to Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade County-based 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. Screening committees have often been organized according to disciplines of visual, music, and performing art. Our organization provides training in grant evaluation to its members. Grant recipients are determined by a majority vote of the members by written ballot.
