In fall 2017, the Biddle Foundation refined the focus of its grantmaking to have greater impact. Grants will continue to support Biddle’s long-standing interests in arts organizations, artists, and K-12 education. We have separate and distinct funding cycles for the Arts Program and the Student Success and Learning Program (focused on K-12 education). Arts education programs fall within the Student Success and Learning Program's guidelines and deadlines.
Changes include the definition of specific goals and criteria within the Arts and Student Success and Learning Programs and the decision to make grants only in the Triangle region of North Carolina. These decisions were made after careful consideration of how the foundation’s limited financial and staff resources could be best deployed. More detail about grant interests, guidelines, and eligibility can be found here.
