Welcome to the Thoma Foundation Grants Portal

The Carl & Marilynn Thoma Foundation recognizes the power of the arts to challenge and shift perceptions, spark creativity, and connect people across cultures. The Foundation provides grants to individuals and 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations whose innovative projects and original ideas will advance scholarship in the arts. We value long-term relationships with grantees and encourage you to connect with us before submitting your inquiry. For questions, please reach out to grants@thomafoundation.org.

We accept Letters of Inquiry from 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations on a rolling basis for the following programs: Grants for Nonprofit Organizations and Publication Grants. This is currently open. Our next deadline is December 15, 2021.

Applications for the Exploratory Travel Awards are open.
