City Funded Cultural Activities

2018-2019 Cultural Funding Cycle

On an annual basis, the City of Bainbridge Island provides significant financial support to local nonprofit organizations to support cultural programs in the community.

The City uses a two-year funding cycle to solicit proposals from local non-profits seeking City funding for cultural activities that serve the resident of Bainbridge Island.

For more information on the Cultural Funding Advisory Committee, please visit the Cultural Funding Advisory Committee webpage.

An information session for potential applicants was held on Monday, October 16, 2017. To view the questions and answers from that meeting, click here.

Applicants presented their proposals and answered questions from CFAC members on Monday, November 6, 2017. View the questions prepared in advance of that meeting (PDF). Additional follow-up questions were submitted by the committee regarding Arts and Humanities Bainbridge (PDF) and BARN (PDF).

Proposals are due no later than 4 p.m. Friday, October 27, 2017. Please submit via email.
