Here’s how it works
Valley Art Share members join a mutual aid grant cycle and give small monthly donations that contribute to a collective fund. Members of a grant cycle are invited to submit project proposals that are reviewed and selected by other members. Micro-grants from the collective fund are redistributed back to Valley Art Share members every three months based on this transparent proposal and selection process. The size of the grants are dependant on the number of VAS members that contribute to the collective fund.
We can make a lot together. This is investing in each other.
1. Become a Member of a Micro Grant Cycle
2. Propose a Project or take a gander at other proposals
*Project proposals are public, this means that anyone can see submissions by Valley Art Share members regardless of whether or not they have joined the site or grant cycle. In order to post a comment or participate in the grant cycle you do need to be a member of Valley Art Share and join the grant cycle.
Deadlines for proposal selection will be posted to the Collect Fund Page.
5. Grantees announced
Grant recipients will be announced and funds released shortly after each round, Check the Collect Fund Page for updates.
A new 6-month grant cycle will open after the previous is complete.
