Cultural Endowment

The Cultural Endowment Program is designed to create endowments by matching funds to provide operating resources to participating cultural organizations.

The Cultural Endowment Program is comprised of two components:

    2. Receipt of a $240,000 State Matching Share (SMS).

Although both parts require the submission of application material, each contains eligibility criteria unique to the components. An organization may be designated as a CSO without applying an SMS. However, CSO designation is an eligibility criterion for receiving an SMS.

Applications for designation as a Cultural Sponsoring Organization may be submitted at any time. See the Cultural Endowment Guidelines for more information.
