The Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation’s grant programs provide funding for visual artists, which have been available since 1976.  The website at www.gottliebfoundation.org provides extensive background about the Foundation and its two grant programs, the Individual Support and Emergency Assistance grants.  The Foundation is a non-profit corporation registered with the State of New York.  The Foundation has been established according to the provisions in the will of Adolph Gottlieb to award financial aid to mature, creative painters, sculptors, and printmakers.  The Foundation does not award grants to institutions or organizations, nor does it fund research, students, or projects.

Deadline: December 15:  Individual Support grants available to painters, printmakers and sculptors with a minimum of 20 years in a mature phase; grant amounts are determined each year.  In April of this year this program awarded 12 grants of $25,000 each to 12 individual artists.  A separate grant program, for emergencies, assists mature painters, printmakers and sculptors suffering from a recent, unforeseen catastrophic event (fire, flood, medical emergency), who have a minimum of ten years in a mature phase; grant amounts range up to $15,000 depending on the need and circumstances of the individual applicant.

Info:  More information including the link to access the on line applications for both programs can be found on our website at http://gottliebfoundation.org/grants/.
