Through its commitment to arts in South Florida, Funding Arts Broward (FAB), has awarded $3.6 million to date for organizations such as Japan Arts, Broward Performing Arts Foundation, Old Dillard Foundation, Slow Burn Theatre Company and Symphony of the Americas.

And the funding continues with its 2022 grants.

The volunteer-based organization is now accepting grant applications for 2022 funding. Local nonprofit arts and organizations are encouraged to apply, online, for one of three-tiered program-specific category grants awarding up to $15,000. This year, FAB offers education grants for the first time, dedicated to art appreciation and skill acquisition for grades K-12. The organization’s 2021 grants ranged from $2,500 to $14,500 and benefited 37 recipients, totaling $300,000.

“By supporting visual and performing arts organizations, our goal is to fund creative and innovative performances, productions, and exhibitions that will stimulate the minds and capture the imaginations of our community’s diverse audiences,” said Ed Hashek, president of FAB, which is supported by membership as well as corporate partners such as The Las Olas Company, Casa D’Angelo, BBX Capital, Northern Trust and others. “We’re excited to announce the addition of an Education Grants tier to nurture and inspire future generations of multidisciplinary artists.”

FAB 2022 grants are available for organizations based in Broward, Palm Beach or Miami-Dade County that offer visual, music or performing arts-focused programming in Broward County. The amounts and categories as follows:
