You can apply by filling the application form, along with reproductions of six recent works (one image per work) – on CD only – preferably completed within the past two years, but definitely no longer than three years ago. Sculptors may send two images of six different works for a maximum of twelve images.

Important Information

  • The Foundation will not accept applications from commercial artists, photographers, video artists, filmmakers, craft-makers or any artist whose work falls primarily into these categories.
  • Grants are made directly to the beneficiaries – not through other organizations.

Harpo Foundation Now Funding Individual Artist Grants

HARPO FOUNDATION is NOW FUNDING INDIVIDUAL ARTISTS DIRECTLY–they are pleased to announce an important change in the Foundation’s grant program. In 2013, starting with the April 5 deadline, the foundation will accept proposals from individual artists as well as from non-profit organizations. Previously, artists were unable to apply for direct support. This restriction has been lifted and artists may now apply on their own behalf using the same application procedures as non-profit organizations.DEADLINE TO SUBMIT A LETTER OF INQUIRY IS APRIL 5

Harpo Foundation receives many more applications than it is able to fund. Therefore, as a way to guide applicants through an open process, the foundation uses a 2-step application process to review proposals submitted by artists, non-profit institutions and fiscal sponsors.
