Grant Information

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.
