2020 Grant Awards

2020 Community Arts Grants Awardees

This year, Saratoga Arts has awarded $123,010 to support community-based arts programming in Saratoga, Fulton, and Montgomery Counties for events taking place in 2020.

Due to the public health emergency that COVID19 has caused, several funded projects that were scheduled to occur in Spring 2020 have been postponed, shifted online or creatively restructured in other ways. If you are an artist or organization that received community arts grant funding and find that you will have to adjust your programming, please reach out to Grants Coordinator, Charlie Owens to discuss options and ideas for presenting your project in this new and uncertain climate. Saratoga Arts is happy to be flexible as possible about any funded project changes that will need to be made, and we will work with grantees to help them through this difficult time.


Saratoga Arts congratulates all of the 2020 Community Arts Grants recipients and will work hard to promote each grant recipient’s funded project throughout 2020. Saratoga Arts will share specific program dates, locations, and other details throughout the year on our social media, website, and e-newsletter.
