This program has no deadlines.
Each grant is given as one-time assistance for a specific emergency, examples of which are fire, flood, or emergency medical need.
The maximum amount of this grant is $15,000; an award of $5,000 is typical.
Applicants should be aware that this is a grant program, and that each application is considered on its merits within the criteria of the program. While we attempt to provide assistance to as many applicants as we can, the filing of an application is not, nor should it be perceived as, a guarantee of funding.
To be eligible for this program, an artist must be able to demonstrate a minimum involvement of ten years in a mature phase of his or her work. Artists must work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture or printmaking. Each application will be reviewed by the Directors, who will exercise their discretion in considering it, and will determine the amount of each award. Applicants should note there is a set amount appropriated for these grants each fiscal year; once this budgetary limit has been reached, the Foundation will not be able to judge any additional requests on their merits.
The Adolf and Esther Gottlieb Foundation was created to benefit “mature, creative painters and sculptors.” The two grant programs offered by the Foundation exist as part of the continuing legacy of Adolph and Esther Gottlieb and reflect their dedication to assisting individual artists.
