GrantEd, Grant educational resources and trainings.

Welcome to GrantEd

Here at Florida Humanities, we believe even the smallest nonprofit organizations with any level of grant-writing experience can achieve funding success. That is why we developed GrantEd – educational resources that give applicants the tools to develop successful proposals and take them from prospective grantee to granted.

Your success is all our success!

Funding Opportunities for Arts Organizations Webinar

Funding Opportunities for Arts Organizations

Wednesday, June 15 at 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EST

As humans with brains hardwired for creativity, the arts and the humanities are not that separate, right? While they are distinct from each other in their methods, “the arts” (like theater, dance, music, and visual art forms) and “the humanities” (history, literature, criticism of the arts, etc.) can complement each other in innovative ways. This distinction, however, can be all the difference in receiving funding from Florida Humanities.

In this 1-hour webinar, Florida Humanities staff will explain the difference and connectivity between “the arts” and “the humanities.” We’ll explore real-world examples of successfully funded, arts-focused proposals that wove in humanities programming, as well as current and upcoming funding opportunities for arts organizations.

This webinar is designed for:

  • Arts Organizations and Cultural Institutions seeking funding for arts and humanities programming
  • Recently denied arts-focused organizations looking to improve their applications
  • Individual artists interested in sharing this information with arts organizations in their communities
