What We Fund

The Perenchio Foundation provides grants to visual and performing arts organizations in Los Angeles to build capacity and expand their ability to serve communities and create impactful experiences for current and future generations. The majority of our grant making is focused on operating support and capital improvements. These priorities are driven by the needs we have heard in ongoing conversations with arts nonprofits across the region.

We invest in organizational infrastructure because a resilient and thriving arts sector contributes to a healthier, more vibrant region.

Operating Support Grant

We understand that long-term operating support allows organizations to better plan for the future, pay livable wages, and cover emergency operating costs, among other benefits. We intend this multi-year unrestricted support to bolster operational resilience for grantees.

We invite you to visit our Grantees page to learn about our Operating Support grantees.

Operating Support Grants will not be offered in 2023. For future updates, join our mailing list.

Capital Improvements Grant

We know that funding for organizations to replace equipment, upgrade technology, or make small building renovations is difficult to obtain. This grant is meant to cover these kinds of costs to help arts organizations lay the groundwork for a long-term future.

The application window for our Capital Improvements Grant is now closed. Applicants will receive notification in either late July or late October 2023.

Additional Information

The Perenchio Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals. Funding opportunities beyond the two grants listed above are by invitation only.

Our priority is to address large-scale community needs in the arts and culture sector. We do not fund: capital campaigns; event sponsorships; individuals; summer camps, festivals, and fairs; political campaigns; and/or lobbying efforts.
