The Puffin Foundation Ltd. has sought to open the doors of artistic expression by providing grants to artists and art organizations who are often excluded from mainstream opportunities due to their race, gender, or social philosophy.


Why the Puffin?

The Puffin, once endangered in the northeastern United States, was returned to its native habitats through the efforts of a concerned citizenry. Our name is a metaphor for how we perceive our mission in the arts: to join with other concerned groups and individuals to ensure that the arts not merely survive, but flourish at all levels of our society.


Foundation Artist Grants for 2016:
Our grant cycle for 2017 is now open for proposals.  We will only be accepting proposals in the fields of video/film and the fine arts (please note photography based proposals will be considered for 2018 - not in this cycle.)  Interested applicants should send a stamped, self addressed business sized envelope to the Foundation to receive an application packet.  Please add "Grant Request" on the bottom of the envelope to expedite your request.  Applications are not available on-line.  Applications may be sent to the Foundation after October 1st.  Notifications will begin on a rolling basis on January 15th and continue through June, 2017.  Please see the FAQ section of our website under the "Grants Info" tab above for more information on the application process.
