To BUILD A MORE equitABLE SOCIETY,
we must build
The Culture & Community Power Fund seeks to invest in, connect, and amplify efforts to help build community power through art and culture.
What We Do
The Fund is a lab to broaden and deepen the understanding of how art and culture can contribute to community power building. We experiment with ways to support organizations, individuals, and networks doing this work. We’re committed to sharing our learning with practitioners, investors, public officials, researchers, and others to help advance art and culture as a critical tool to support community power building.
Who We Support
We support communities most impacted by structural oppression. In 2022, we awarded unrestricted, multi-year grants to organizations that are deeply rooted in their communities, utilize creative practice and cultural strategies, and work to address systemic and intersectional societal challenges.
Who We Are
The project will bring together funders, front-line organizations, community members, and thought leaders to experiment outside and across their traditional programs, structures, and geographies. Founders members of our Funders Coalition include Barr Foundation, The Kresge Foundation, and William Penn Foundation.
