Arts and Humanities

Our giving in the Arts and Humanities includes theater, dance, music, visual arts, film and other multidisciplinary art forms, as well as organizations that promote the humanities. We focus on nonprofits that have deep, meaningful impact and can demonstrate the depth and breadth of their local initiatives. The Foundation examines how access to the Arts and Humanities for diverse populations is created and how unique opportunities are provided for all ages to engage. In addition to more traditional approaches, we believe in the power of the Arts and Humanities to be innovative and create social change.

At our Fall Board of Directors’ Meeting in October 2018, The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation awarded 132 grants for a total of $9,670,000. Below is a list of our recent grantees who applied for a grant between March 2, 2018 and July 2, 2018.
