Funding Priorities in Culture

The Hearst Foundations are only able to fund approximately 20% of all grant requests, of which about 80% is directed to prior grantees and about 20% is targeted for new grantees.


In the recent past, 25% of total funding has been allocated to Culture. Organizations with budgets over $10 million have received 60% of the funding in Culture.


Types of Support:

  • Program, capital and, on a limited basis, general and endowment support


Preference will be given to:

  • Artist development and training
  • Arts education programs that effectively fill the void of arts programming in K-12 curricula
  • Science education programs that focus on developing academic pathways in science, technology, engineering and math
