Culture Works invites members of the community to apply to serve as panelists for the 2019 Community Arts Grant program, which provides general operating support grants for Dayton Region arts organizations.
The funds for these grants are raised through Culture Works’ annual Campaign for the Arts, which draws support from individuals, businesses, and foundations. To ensure a fair and equitable grantmaking process, applications for funding are reviewed by an independent grant panel of up to eight panelists.
Grant panelists are selected based on their knowledge of and experience in the arts, business and nonprofit management, and the community. Panelists review and score the applications and discuss them at a public grant panel meeting held in May. The averages of the scores from panelists are used to determine the funding each organization receives.
Key Dates for 2019 Panelists:
January 1 – May 23, 2019: Grant panelist site visits take place
April 19, 2019: Grant applications available for panelists to begin review
May 30, 2019: Grant Panel Meeting, 8:00am to 1:00pm (tentative)
