Puffin Foundation Grant Award Program

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.

For the upcoming 2018 cycle we will review grants only in the following fields: Music, Photography & Theater. 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.

Application packets may only be requested starting September 1, 2017. The only way to receive an application is by sending a #10 SASE to:
