Emergency Relief Grants

Phase 1: (closed November 20, 2020) The Wichita Creatives Fund Emergency Relief Grant was created in April 2020 for individuals working in the art and creative sector who have been impacted by the current public health crisis. This fund provided $500 rapid response, one-time, needs-based grants to help offset the lost wages affecting so many in our creative community. 

These efforts raised $53,500 and awarded grants to 107 Wichita-area creatives. You can see their messages of gratitude and donor messages of encouragement here:
