Grants

Past grant programs have focused on key initiative areas of creative aging and partnerships with public schools.
 

Partners in Arts Education

Due to a change in its mission, the MetLife Foundation will no longer support the Partners in Arts Education Grant Program. The last grants were awarded in September 2013. The Partners in Arts Education Program, initiated in 2005, aimed to enhance arts learning in K-12 public schools by supporting partnerships between Guild members and public schools.

While the National Guild is unable to continue to fund arts-in-education partnerships at this time, we are exploring how best to continue our support of this important work.

Creative Aging

Due to a change in its mission, the MetLife Foundation will no longer support the Creative Aging Program. The last grants were awarded in early 2013. The National Guild for Community Arts Education launched the MetLife Foundation Creative Aging Program in 2009 in response to a major demographic shift underway in the United States—the number of adults age 65 and above will double by 2050—and recent research demonstrating that sustained participation in professionally-led arts programs can promote health and prevent disease in older adults.

CAP’s goals were to:

  • increase the capacity of nonprofit community arts education providers to serve older adults;
  • expand and/or deepen existing creative aging programs of high quality; and
  • identify exemplary creative aging programs as models for the field.

While the National Guild is unable to continue to fund creative aging programs at this time, we are exploring how best to continue our support of this important work going forward.
