The Thoma Foundation accepts Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) on a rolling basis from 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. We fund programs that provide promising new insights into the fields of art in which we collect: Digital & Electronic Art, Art of the Spanish Americas, Post-War Painting & Sculpture, and Japanese Bamboo. We value long-term relationships with grantees and encourage you to connect with us before submitting your inquiry.
You may submit an LOI on our online grants portal linked below. If we are interested in learning more about your project, you will hear from us within thirty days with an invitation to submit a Complete Proposal. The Foundation reviews Complete Proposals quarterly (check Apply Now for next deadline). We strive to respond within sixty days following review dates. Please keep in mind that the Foundation prefers twelve months’ notice before the start of a project.
