The Trust provides support in the fields of fine arts and music by empowering aspiring artists and underserved youth.
Beginning January 1, 2021 The Crewe Foundation is imposing a 36 month freeze on all new grant applications.
This is the result of the Foundation approving the biggest grant in its history and which necessitates a period for the Foundation to regrow its corpus.
We are extremely pleased we have been able to make this large commitment but regret the period of restriction it has created.
We hope this period may be shortened but for now we will not consider any applications before December 31,2023.
You will not be able to submit an application before December 2023.
*THIS NOTICE DOES NOT AFFECT ANY MULTI YEAR GRANTS WHICH HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY APPROVED.
All applications will be assessed by the following criteria:
- The organization’s capacity to empower youth to become productive artists, songwriters and/or composers
- The extent to which the program fosters a passion for fine arts and music
- The extent to which the program enhances and/or creates change in and/or for the LGBTQ community, especially focusing on youth, teen and young adult communities
- The organization’s potential for effecting change through a history of achievement and effective management
- The measurement of outcomes and evaluations should be quantifiable
- The demonstration that the organization has a strong financial foundation utilizing diverse funding sources
- Verification of 501(c)(3) status
We are currently NOT accepting applications for the following: Brick and Mortar/build-outs, salaries/staffing or administration*
All applicants MUST apply through the online application process in order to be accepted. You may also send an email or hard copy but there must be a form off the application done through the Grant Interface.
