Zellerbach Family Foundation Accepting Applications From Bay Area Art Projects
JULY 27, 2015
DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 25, 2015
Originally named the Zellerbach Family Fund, the Zellerbach Family Foundation was established in 1956 by Jennie B. Zellerbach. Over the ensuing years, the foundation has distributed more than $70 millionin charitable support. From its inception, the foundation has focused on the San Francisco Bay Area, where the Zellerbach family has deep roots. Since 1868, when Anthony Zellerbach began selling paper from a horse-drawn wagon in San Francisco, the Zellerbach family has been active in the economic, religious, artistic and philanthropic life of the community.
The foundation is accepting applications for its Community Arts Program, which supports local artists who are creating new and innovative work that is representative of the diverse cultures and communities in the Bay Area. Grants of up to $7,500 will be awarded for projects in the areas of dance, theater, visual arts, music, festivals, poetry, literature, and publications. Priority will be given to performance-oriented, contemporary projects.
To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit arts-serving organization or fiscal sponsor doing its work in San Francisco, Contra Costa, and/or Alameda counties (west of the Caldecott Tunnels). Individual artists must work with a fiscal sponsor in order to be funded.
The foundation will host a workshop for new applicants on September 8, 2015, in San Francisco.
