In 2017, Field Foundation announced its new grantmaking model, which is anchored by a belief in community empowerment and includes a new set of funding priorities and a new Letter of Inquiry process. As we embark on this vision, we invite past and potential grantees to join our team in discussions about the new direction of our funding efforts, the Field’s vision going forward, and our Arts, Justice and Leadership Investment program areas.

These events are ideal for organizations who have yet to apply for funding from the Field Foundation and past grantees who are trying to understand how their organization fits within this new model.

Field Foundation hosted its VII information session at 11 am on Tuesday, December 15. This session was completely virtual. The Letter of Inquiry portal for summer 2021 grant consideration also opened that day. The session provided general guidelines to our grantmaking and include details about our grants in Art, Justice, Media & Storytelling and the Leaders for a New Chicago Award.
