Help us raise money and awareness for Westchester arts organizations this fall. Take the Art$WChallenge and donate to any of the eligible organizations listed on this page (2019 list in formation). Your donation will provide much needed funds to support cultural programs and services in Westchester. Every new dollar donated (up to $5,000 per organization) September 16, 2019 through December 16, 2019, is eligible to be matched by ArtsWestchester with the support of Westchester County Government.

Please Note: Funding is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis, until all available funds have been allocated. Submitting by the deadline does not guarantee funding.

About ArtsWestchester Grants
ArtsWestchester grants reach every part of the County and make possible an extraordinary array of cultural activities. Our grants help Westchester’s cultural organizations grow and support individual artists in the creation of new work. The 2019 Challenge Grant Program is a funding opportunity open to cultural organizations that received a 2019 Basic Program Support, Project Support, Yonkers Arts Initiative or Mount Vernon Arts Initiative grant to help boost their operating income by attracting new contributions. This grant is made possible with support from Westchester County government.
