By Lauren Domino, Philanthropic Advisor

The Founders of The Morgan Fund, a Family Foundation at Seattle Foundation, care deeply about supporting our region’s ecosystem of small and mid-sized performing arts organizations. By awarding grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000, their goal is to support organizations in advancing high-quality performances for our community to enjoy.  Their main funding cycle, the Puget Sound Initiative, focuses on providing grants to dance and theatre organizations with budgets of less than $2 million that are located in Western Washington, Central Washington, or the Greater Portland area.  Proposals will be considered for production support, equipment purchases, audience development initiatives, and professional development opportunities that strengthen artistic quality.

This will be the biggest funding cycle for The Morgan Fund to date: they intend to distribute $150,000 in total, and the application deadline is September 30, 2016.  Applicant organizations must be a tax¬≠ exempt nonprofit under section 501(c)3 of the IRS code or be fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)3 organization.  Please visit www.themorganfund.com to view full details or to complete the online application form.
