For over 10 years, the Detroit Arts Support (DAS) initiative has provided unrestricted operating funding to arts and cultural organizations in the metro Detroit region. The program aims to strengthen the sector broadly through consistent support for a large and diverse set of organizations that contribute to the quality of life and cultural vitality of metropolitan Detroit, and provide opportunities for creative expression for people of all backgrounds in the region. Past partners and new organizations are invited to apply. DAS is open to nonprofit performing arts organizations; visual arts organizations; literary arts organizations; collecting organizations; media and public broadcasting organizations; community-based arts and culture organizations; arts service organizations; arts education organizations; and cultural heritage organizations. Municipalities, schools, religious congregations, non-arts nonprofit organizations, and for-profit organizations are not eligible to apply. Kresge, the Erb Foundation, the Hudson-Webber Foundation and the DeRoy Testamentary Foundation will all award grants through this collaborative process and shared application. This document outlines the guidelines to apply.
