What We Fund
The Lulu & Leo Fund provides a limited number of grants throughout the year to organizations delivering on our mission. Ideal candidates have a long-term focus on all three areas of impact, scale and innovation. To be considered for funding, organizations must fall into at least one of the following funding areas:
Supporting programs that use art as a means of processing trauma, adversity or loss.
Providing access to the arts for children and families living in under resourced communities.
Funding collective art projects for communities faced with loss, suffering, or hardship that wish to facilitate healing through creativity.
Reporting and Measuring Impact
The Lulu & Leo Fund supports meaningful programs that wish to expand and broaden their impact within the community through the arts. The goal of the Fund is to embark on full partnerships with its grantees. The Fund expects to work with our partners throughout the year to help them reach their strategic goals. As a result, grantees are required to provide 6-month and end-of-year reports that include detailed quantitative and qualitative impact of the programming that we support.
Grants are made to nonprofit organizations which have tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code, or are pending 501(c)(3) status with a fiscal sponsor, and which are not private foundations. The Foundation does not make grants to:
Individuals or government agencies.
Organizations or activities whose services are limited to members of one religious or sectarian group.
Organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.
Fraternal, social, professional, athletic or veterans’ organizations.
Endowments or capital campaigns.
The Lulu & Leo Fund is currently not accepting new grant applications.
