Innovate Grants for Art / Photo / Funding

Innovate Grants

We believe that new ideas come from sparks of inspiration and aim to provide just that, access to mighty bursts of financial support so that you can focus on making your important and innovative work.

Innovate Grant was created out of the frustration of applying to grants with time-consuming requirements. These lengthy applications took valuable time and energy away from making new work. Countless hours were always sacrificed in either writing artist statements, crafting project proposals and getting letters of recommendation.

We believe that time is one of the most valuable components to fostering creativity and innovation. Our aim is to provide the time you need to be fully immersed in your ideas and in creating your work.

Keeping the grant process simple enables us to continue to support you on your important journey of creation, inspiration, and innovation.

Our grant application is straight forward so that you can spend your valuable hours making new work rather than on time-consuming requirements like writing statements, proposals, and obtaining letters of recommendation.

All that we require is your:
— Name
