Grant Information


PLEASE NOTE THE ANNUAL GRANT CYCLE IS CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR APPLICATIONS AND WILL REOPEN IN SPRING 2021. THE INFORMATION ON THIS PAGE IS FOR REFERENCE ONLY AT THIS TIME. Meanwhile, you are encouraged to follow us on Facebook or Twitter as we support the arts year-round through helping promote both for-profit and nonprofit arts engagement within Forsyth County and beyond.


The Forsyth County Arts Alliance, a fund of the North Georgia Community Foundation, distributes funds through an annual grant cycle, and invites application for these funds by local/regional arts providers.

We welcome grant proposals that demonstrate traditional forms of artistic service in our community, as well as proposals of fresh endeavors that highlight our residents’ diversity (in age, ethnicity, artistic genre and medium, etc.) and outside-the-box initiatives.
