The Philadelphia Culture Fund 2018 Art & Culture Grant Program

The Philadelphia Cultural Fund (PCF) was established in 1991 when Philadelphia’s Mayor and City Council authorized the creation of a non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation whose mission was to provide funds to enhance the cultural life and vitality of the City of Philadelphia and its residents. The Fund promotes arts and culture as engines of social, educational and economic development in the Philadelphia region. Grants are made from a City budget allocation to the Philadelphia Cultural Fund for operating support of Philadelphia-based arts and culture organizations dedicated to creating, preserving and/or exhibiting visual, literary and performing arts, architecture, science, history and the humanities. They are accepting applications for the 2018 Art & Culture Grant Program until Saturday, September 30, 2017 by 5:00 pm

Overall goals of the Cultural Fund are:

  • to provide general operating support funds to serve Philadelphia-based arts and cultural institutions and organizations
  • to advocate the value of the arts in daily life and their importance to the growth and future of the community
  • to recognize the contributions of Philadelphia-based organizations, both emerging and established, that have a demonstrated track record of service, and the financial management and programming capacity to continue providing service
  • to recognize and nurture artistic quality
  • to encourage and increase opportunities for involvement and participation in arts and cultural activities by culturally diverse constituencies
  • to preserve and protect the cultural heritage of Philadelphia and encourage a sense of pride and commitment in the city
