The purpose of this grant opportunity is to support greater Bartlesville area cultural organizations in their missions to provide access to arts and humanities programming in the area. While all arts and humanities programs are eligible for funding, the grant committee has a particular interest in funding new programs, or on-going programs that will serve new audiences or under-served audiences. Starting in 2021, the fund will also offer grants to support general operating expenses. While qualified organizations may submit requests to each funding category, only one grant will be awarded per organization, per grant cycle. This fund does not make grants to sponsor fundraising events.

Request Limits: 

    • Programming: minimum is $500, maximum is $2,000
    • General Operating Support: minimum is $2,500, maximum is $5,000

** Awards must not exceed 50% of the project funding. Other sources of funding may include donations from individuals, foundations, corporate grants, income earned, etc.**


An announcement for this grant to re-open will be published and posted on this page.
