Grantee Resources

TCF has compiled a list of resources, which serve to benefit individuals, organizations and tribal entities who are seeking funding or assistance with developing programs in their community focused on education, culture and Alaska Native artists. We are also happy to discuss grant-writing plans with tribal and Alaska Native organizations- contact us for more information.

Artist Grant Proposal Writing Handbookwritersfront_back

The purpose of this handbook is to offer suggestions and clarify the process of writing a grant proposal for arts funding.

This text was originally developed by the First Peoples’ Cultural Council (FPCC), a British Columbia Canada based organization whose mandate is to support the revitalization of Aboriginal language, arts and culture. FPCC very generously agreed to share their workbook with The CIRI Foundation (TCF) to be adapted to provide information and resources specific to Alaskan artists. Lena Jacobs of Benozaadleyo Consulting, LLC assisted in the research and editing to create this revised Alaska version of the handbook.

TCF is grateful for this partnership and collaborative spirit enabling us to
increase our resources to perpetuate and promote the unique artistic and cultural traditions of Alaska Native peoples!
