In 2015 (most recent annual report available) The Foundation made around 30 grants in its Building Audience for the Arts program, totalling just over $14 million. The average grant award was around $400,000.
The Wallace Foundation is based in New York City but has no specific geographic mandate. They work in six areas: afterschool, arts education, building audiences for the arts, expanding learning, school leadership, and summer learning. The Foundation’s education initiatives are primarily focused on K-12. You can find more information on their Building Audiences for the Arts initiative here and resources from past grantees here.
Wallace will identify prospective grantees through a selective process and requests for proposals. Visit their website for more information on their funding guidelines.
