Grants Puffin Foundation Artist Grants
U.S. National Deadline: December 6, 2016 – The Puffin Foundation Ltd. has sought to open the doors of artistic expression by providing grants to artists and art organizations who are often excluded from mainstream opportunities due to their race, gender, or social philosophy.
The Foundation’s grant search provides funds to hundreds of artists annually. We also partner with numerous other organizations and institutions on special projects to bring the values of the Foundation to the public at large.
Average grants are approximately $1,250. The maximum grant size is $2,500.
Grants from the Puffin Foundation, Ltd. can only be awarded to permanent residents and citizens of the United States. U.S. citizens whose projects encompass work in other countries are still eligible to apply.
The Foundation’s 2017 Grant Cycle opened in September 2016 for the fields of fine arts and video/film. To receive an application packet for the 2017 Grant Cycle please send a SASE (#10 self-addressed stamped envelope) between September 1st and December 6th, 2016 to the address below. We do not provide applications via email or via download.

The Foundation requests that previous grantees allow a one-year hiatus prior to reapplication. This allows our grants to be available to an even wider number of applicants. Applicants may only submit one proposal per year.
We are not able to provide status reports about the disposition of submitted applications, so PLEASE do not call seeking such information. Applicants will be notified on an ongoing basis about the decision on their application from January 15th through June.
The Puffin Foundation Ltd. continues to make grants that encourage emerging artists whose works might have difficulty being aired due to their genre and/or social philosophy. The Foundation does not have the means to fund large film/documentary proposals, grants for travel, continuing education, or the writing or publishing of books.
