Miller Foundation Small Arts Grant (Small Organizations)

Fast Track Arts grants provide Operating Support. We know that funding general operations is the best way to help arts organizations thrive.

Specific eligibility considerations
Because the Miller Foundation believes that every child should have access to a well-rounded education that includes the arts, our Arts grants also support K-12 Arts Education programs. If you provide arts education programming, you have a greater chance of receiving Miller funding if your programs meet any of the criteria below.
K-12 Arts Education
- You provide non-school based sequential arts education specifically engaging youth who face economic, geographic, or other barriers to participation.
- You work in partnership with public schools to provide arts education where such programming would otherwise be unavailable.
- You connect young people with professional teaching artists.
- You provide culturally specific arts education.
