Cultural Enrichment & the Arts

Seeking to foster an even greater appreciation of Memphis arts and culture, The Foundation supports some of our area’s cultural icons and groups that work to promote the cultural and artistic heritage of Greater Memphis.

Special Notice

The Assisi Foundation of Memphis, Inc. will review grant requests from arts and cultural organizations at the annual January board meeting. Deadline for applications for that meeting will be in November of the prior year.

Requests may be considered for (1) capital campaigns/endowments, (2) renovations and repairs, and (3) underwriting special programming/artists (after all other options have been explored). Any other types of requests (such as requests for audience development, marketing, or arts education and outreach) will be referred to ArtsMemphis. Any organization submitting an application must meet the eligibility criteria. This will not affect any current grant relationships we have with arts organizations.
