If submitting by mail, address the proposal to:

The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts
65 Bleecker Street, 7th Floor

If submitting by email, send to firstname.lastname@example.org and attach all materials as Word documents, Excel documents or PDFs. You will receive an email notification within 24 hours confirming materials have successfully been submitted. Proposals received via mail will receive a postcard indicating receipt of submission.
The majority of the Foundation’s grants are made to US-based institutions. For internationally-based organizations, a letter of inquiry is required to determine whether a full proposal will be accepted.
A full proposal for funding should include the following:
- A letter of approximately 3 pages describing the organization and the activity for which funds are being requested
- A separate budget: see specifications under each category
- A copy of the organization’s 501(c)3 ruling from the IRS; we do not accept proposals through fiscal sponsors
Please do not send any additional material with your proposal.
