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.
Puffin Foundation Artist Grants for 2015:
The current grant cycle is closed for new applications. We thank the many individuals and organizations who have applied for funding in 2015. Each proposal will be entered into our database by the end of January and we will then alert applicants that we have received your material. The review process is already underway. Grantees and applicants whose proposals were not able to be funded will be alerted on an ongoing process through late May/June.
