Why do we offer grants?
Causability realizes that oftentimes artists are often asked to donate their art or time to nonprofits and do not receive remuneration. We believe that this mindset contributes to an undeserved or ‘starving artist’ stereotype.
We also believe that creators, nonprofits and communities can benefit much more from collaborating together on a project rather than just one time ‘gifting’ their art away.
Therefore, we’re offering four different grants to empower and encourage collaboration:
$2,500.00 grants for creators to collaboratively develop a specific art program with a nonprofit.
*Collaborative creator grants are currently limited geographically to Oklahoma County, Oklahoma and Dallas County, TX.
*Be sure you meet these qualifications for Causability’s grant before spending hours on an ineligible proposal.
Causability (Grantor) is one of the only nonprofit organizations in the county of Dallas County, Texas & Oklahoma County, Oklahoma providing grants (grantees) to creators, and providing them the ability to collaborate with nonprofits (causes) to co-create programs mutually benefiting both themselves and a community.
Causability grants are strictly meant to support the work and practice of creators not currently working with nonprofits but specifically for developing new programs with nonprofits (causes) through mutual collaboration.
Grants recipients (creators) are available to use all mediums and disciplines although special emphasis is for primarily developing events or programs (causes) assisting underserved and/or socio-economically marginalized areas.
The collaboration must include one or more of the following disciplines offered through special events, workshops, or some kind of audience participation to unite and build community community interactivity through the use of visual arts, dance, theater, and music. It also must be mutually beneficial to the nonprofit and the community it serves, emphasizing a program with the collaboration from the creators.
This grant can be also designed and used as a vehicle for fundraising if the program is focused on assisting other creators and fostering community involvement while simultaneously uplifting individuals within the community. Stipulations are that any online fundraising must use Causability.fund.
Funding for Causability’s grants comes from supporters and product sales from our ecommerce site Art For Your Cause.
