What Makes Us Different? 

Open Application Process

Creative Capital is one of the only national nonprofit organizations that awards grants to individual artists through an open application process. 


We are a premier provider of risk capital in the arts, taking chances to support ideas that are bold, innovative and genre-stretching. For examples of projects that have received the Creative Capital Award, see our Artist Projects.

Individual Approach

Our individualized approach surrounds artists with the financial and advisory resources they need to realize their artistic visions and build sustainable careers.

CommitmentWe make a commitment to work with each artist over a three- to five-year period that involves a high level of engagement between Creative Capital and the artist.
