Sept - Dec 2023 Grant Deadlines

Bay Area Performing Arts Grant Deadlines
September – December 2023

SFIAF works with multiple artists to raise funds for individual projects that take place as part of the Festival. This page contains a sample list of funding deadlines for the coming months, from  September-December 2023.

If a grant deadline is marked ** (and has no URL link) this denotes that the next deadline is still to be announced, but this was the deadline for the last cycle, so we cautiously expect it to be somewhat similar this year.

This list will evolve over the coming months as foundations announce new deadlines. If you wish to receive notices when this list is updated, please send an email to [email protected] with the subject title Add to Grant Deadlines Notice. Please also state whether you are an artist or an administrator and your affiliation.
