Jim Campbell, Grand Central Station No. 3 (still), 2009.

The Foundation accepts proposals from 501(c)(3) organizations for academic programs, exhibitions, lectures, symposia and publications that provide promising new insights into the fields of art in which we collect. We encourage early stage projects with ground-shifting concepts where seed funds are critical to the endeavor.

Please review our art collection areasguidelines and how to apply pages to determine if your project is compatible with the Foundation’s mission. Initially, the Foundation requests a Letter of Inquiry. If the Foundation is interested in a project, we will request a Complete Proposal.

Please note that the Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals from individuals.

If you have questions about our grant opportunities for organizations, please contact our staff at grants@thomafoundation.org. Please note that Letters of Inquiry must be submitted using our online application form.
