Crisp-Ellert Grants for Visual Arts in St. Augustine: Building community through the arts engages people where they live. This is one of the goals of the Dr. JoAnn Crisp-Ellert Fund. These grants offer funding to nonprofit organizations which promote visual art or visual art education in St. Augustine.
The Dr. JoAnn Crisp-Ellert Fund has supported a wide range of innovative projects since it was established in 2007. Click here for information on most recent grants.
Grant Proposals of $2,500 to $5,000 will be accepted.
Proposals of $2,500 or less are called Sponsorships. These require submitting only a Preliminary Application. These are accepted at any time throughout the year, while funds are still available.
Larger grant requests up to $5,000 require submitting a Preliminary Application, and if invited forward, a Full Application must then be submitted. The timeline for application deadlines is below.
