Women, Arts & Progressive Social Change

Deadline to Apply: Friday, March 13, 2020, 5 pm EST

Asian Women Giving Circle (AWGC) believes culture is an essential part of any strategy for social change. We support Asian American women-led organizations and individual artists in NYC who are using arts and culture to:
  • bring about progressive social transformation,
  • raise awareness and catalyze action around critical issues that affect Asian American women, girls and families, and
  • highlight and promote women’s central role as leaders, creators, developers and managers of these projects.
In this grants cycle, we anticipate that 5-8 project grants will be awarded, contingent on available funding. The maximum grant amount is $15,000.

Our Grants Review Process

We have one grants cycle per year. Typically, we release our Request for Proposals (RFP) in January. Applications for funding are due back in March. We review proposals and invite all current donors to vote on a ballot of finalist projects, usually in May. We announce grantee partners and disburse grant monies in June.
