Arts and Humanities

The Foundation seeks to support the visual arts through funding exhibitions of the highest caliber at established museums with the intent to broaden audience. Exhibitions that provide access through educational initiatives and programs, public events, and outreach programs are preferred. Acclaimed museums with which the Foundation has an established relationship may apply for support for internships or research positions. Local art institutions must be located in Kleberg or adjoining counties to apply. Organizations outside this geographic region with a history of previous funding may apply.

Arts organizations may apply once a year. A request letter signed by the President or CEO is required. Before you begin your application, we request you review the grant guidelines and the PDF documents below to be sure to submit a complete application:
