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 2019:
The application period for our 2019 grant cycle has begun.  We will only be considering proposals in the fields of the fine arts (excluding photography) & video/film.  We will also be considering a limited number of artists directly addressing the human caused degradation and challenges facing nature and the environment. Applicants will be notified if they are awarded or denied a grant on a rolling basis through July 1, 2019.  Please see the FAQ section of our website for more information on how to request an application packet, the application itself and the review process.
