New Resources for your Arts Grantees

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Northern California Grantmakers is pleased to announce the release of new loan opportunities for Bay Area arts nonprofits. We have launched a new user-friendly website with access to loan applications and resources for your grantees.  

Last year the Arts Loan Fund (ALF) embarked on a journey to better serve the needs of the arts community. For more than 30 years, the ALF has provided short-term financial assistance to nonprofit arts organizations who face periodic cash-flow gaps.

We learned that despite thirty years of loans and continuing cash-flow struggles for arts organizations, the ALF is not widely known in the arts community, and its website and application needed a face-lift. 

In response, the ALF launched a new website, switched to a user-friendly application platform, created three new loan products, and opened two social media spaces. Follow us on Twitter and we will follow you right back. Like us on Facebook for new resources and funding opportunities!    

Know an arts organization who can benefit from having the ALF in their tool box? Help NCG spread the word and share with your grantees and other potential applicants.
