Beyond grants related to our collections, the Foundation supports diverse initiatives at the intersection of art, education, and community. Starting in 2020, the Thoma Foundation began making grants to educational institutions and nonprofit organizations within our target states (Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma) with the goal of improving the opportunities afforded to young people in nonmetro and rural areas. These grants are currently available by invitation only and we are not accepting unsolicited proposals in this category. Read more about Previous Recipients of education-related grants here.

Our Digital Changemaker and Bold Initiatives Grants have sparked innovation in arts & cultural organizations, challenging the status quo by questioning the way institutions relate to their audiences and communities.
The Thoma Foundation’s Publication Grants were design for museum and university presses publishing projects that offered significant original scholarship in the fields of digital and media art, art of the Spanish Americas, post-war painting and sculpture, Japanese bamboo, and arts and culture of the American Southwest.
