EXPAND VISUAL ARTS IN K-12 SCHOOLS


​​ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION


   The foundation only awards grants to nonprofit public charities in the United States. The Board prefers projects of its own initiative, rather than         funding unsolicited grants. Matching or challenge fund requests are considered favorably. In general, the Board prefers program support over           capital funds. 

   Unsolicited requests should not be made for:​

  • Debt retirement or completed projects
  • Mental, physical, or situational therapy or rehabilitation programs
  • Endowments or large capital projects
  • Exhibitions or public art installations​
  • ​Performing arts such as theater, dance, music, or spoken word
  • Conferences, festivals, or seminars



  • Artist residencies, visiting artists, or fellowships
  • Visual arts programming and scholarships
  • Materials, tools, or equipment


When a public charity receives a large grant from a single private source – such as an individual, business or private foundation (i.e., Windgate Foundation) – and not from public charities or government, a large grant could bring your public support calculation below the required minimum and “tip” the organization out of public charity status with the IRS. 

Supporting contemporary craft & visual arts in the United States, Windgate Foundation's funding priorities are to:

​"Tipping" Rule for Nonprofits

  • Visual art-integrated programs through nonprofit organizations which develop creative, innovative ways of learning
  • Visual art-integrated training or professional development programs for teachers and school leaders

STRENGTHEN VISUAL ARTS IN COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES

SUPPORT CHILDREN and youth IN ARKANSAS
