Art Angels

Our Grant Process


What is the grant process?

Art Angels meets each spring, for about two hours to discuss proposals and generate questions. During the next week various group members make calls and inquiries to answer the questions. One member summarizes the discussion about each proposal and sends notes by email to the group, including those who could not make the first meeting. At a subsequent meeting a few weeks later members  share answers and make funding decisions.

Art Angels has a donor-advised account at Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts, which we use as the fiscal agent for our gifts.

How does  Art Angels find out about projects?

There are three ways in which potential projects come to the Art Angels:

1.Organizations or individuals can email Jennifer Ladd for an application at and then email the completed form back.

2.  An angel can bring forward a project that he/she likes.

3.  The Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts sends proposals to the Art Angels for consideration.
