The Foundation provides financial support to museums and non-profit organizations for exhibitions, publications, and educational projects that promote a greater awareness and understanding of printmaking as an artistic medium.

Grants are made to non-profit organizations that are certified tax-exempt under section 501(c) (3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service code. Applications from organizations outside the United States that can document not-for-profit status will also be considered.

Online submission opens in January each year and must be completed by March 31. Please download the Grants Guidelines for complete details.
