Opportunity for Indiana nonprofit organizations, government agencies, art collectives, and individuals in eligible counties to participate in a fundraising campaign that promotes local arts projects. Selected applicants will participate in a month-long social media-based crowd-funding program that leverages community support for, and awareness of, diverse creative projects. Requests will be accepted from applicants in Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Miami, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells, and Whitley Counties.

Similar to Kickstarter, Amplify Art uses a fundraising platform designed to gain community support for selected arts projects. Donors give online to support selected projects during a month-long campaign. All donations collected filter through Arts United, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, making them tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.

Eligible projects must meet one (1) of the following criteria, but do not need to meet all. Meeting more than one criteria does not increase chances of being approved for participation.

  • New projects
  • Projects led by or involving BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) artists
  • Projects located in underserved communities within Northeast Indiana

Project budgets of all sizes are open for consideration, but based on past fundraising results budgets greater than $5,000 are strongly discouraged unless there is already committed funding for the project from other sources. Budgets of $5,000+ will need to demonstrate a more extensive plan for fundraising within those sections of the application.
