The Foundation provides a variety of grants for 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. For most of these programs, we accept letters of inquiry on a quarterly basis for bold proposals that align with our mission. Please refer to individual program pages for details about eligibility and deadlines.
We are pleased to announce three new initiatives that build on the Thoma Foundation’s longstanding commitment to promoting new scholarship in our collection areas, increasing educational opportunities, and building capacity in cultural organizations. Our new Publication Grants Program supports university and museum press publishing projects that offer significant new scholarship within our collection areas. The Digital Changemaker Grant funds small or midsize organizations reimagining the role and use of technology in art and culture. Finally, our Equity Grants aim to improve the lives of young people in rural or under-resourced areas of Arizona, Illinois, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas with a focus on arts and culture, education, and community-building.
