How we fund
Artists for Kids provides small grants to enable children and young people, aged 5-17, who are experiencing hardship to participate in a broad range of artistic and cultural activities.
These activities include dance, music, drama and other cultural experiences. We also fund other interests and projects that we consider will enhance a child’s life experience.
Category A - Individual
Funding is currently capped at $375 per term per child.
We fund an individual children for a range of activities including art, music, dance, drama, as well as programs and experiences such as camps – any approved activity that will enrich a child’s life experience.
We also have limited yearly funding for swimming and sporting activities.
Category B – Group Project
Funding for Group Projects will be available again from 2024.
We help kids who would otherwise miss out
Jack’s teacher knew of our grants and filled out an application for him. She felt he had a talent for music and knew he’d grow from some lessons. She organised a tutor and we paid for the classes which would not have been available to Jack without our financial support.
