The Getty Education and Community Investment Grants Program

Applications for Round 3 of the League's Getty Grants are now closed. The following information is provided for reference only.

Need guidance on your application? Watch our webinar, Tips for Applying to the League's Getty Grants!

The League is pleased to announce a third round of grants to orchestras that help to stimulate growth and excellence in education and community engagement. With funding from the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation, these one-year grants, ranging from $10,000 to $40,000, will be awarded to orchestras for activities in fiscal year 2015. This is a new funding cycle; all orchestras meeting the guidelines are encouraged to apply.

The Getty Grants will invest in:

  • enhancing and deepening established programs that have been in place for three or more years and have demonstrated measurable success; or
  • planning, developing, and implementing innovative new initiatives that strengthen community ties and respond to community needs.

Please review the application guidelines  and then complete the online letter of inquiry application that must be uploaded (and not emailed) by August 11.

Orchestras will hear back by the week of September 15, and for those orchestras invited to move to the full application phase, final applications will be due October 15.

Grants cannot be used to:

  • create new organizations
  • support single, one-off events or activities that do not represent the development or support of long-term relationships (such as assembly programs, holiday concerts, etc.)

For a snapshot of orchestras that have received support in Round 2 of the program, click here.
