Arts Challenge Fund

The Arts Challenge Fund, sponsored by MECU and hosted by Arts Every Day, will award 12 Baltimore City Public Schools who have increased their arts programming by adding a certified arts educator to their school where there previously wasn't one. (You are eligible to apply if your school arts program was previously staffed by a vendor and is now staffed by certified arts educator or a program was added that wasn't available in the previous year and is staffed by a certified arts educator.) An award of $2,500 is available to be used for arts materials, equipment, and/or repair services. In order to be eligible, the school will need to prove, through a signed letter from the administration, that at least $1000 was spent on arts supplies for the 2019-2020 school year. The goal of this award is to help build a sustainable arts program within a school.
 
Arts Every Day will purchase the materials/services on their end and have the materials delivered to either the school or the AED offices at 120 W. North Ave. AED will not reimburse purchases made by individual schools. A quote, purchase order, shopping cart link, or screenshots of a shopping cart in a doc may be uploaded below to qualify as an applicant. Schools will be accepted on a rolling basis and Arts Every Day has the right to reject requests at their discretion. All applicants will be contacted in regards to their request and notified of their status within 3-5 business days of their application.
 
All selected schools are asked to:
  • Provide photographic and/or video documentation of students using the supplies and a brief explanation of the impact of the supplies shared in a follow-up survey with AED by Friday, May 29th at 5:00 pm
