Grant Detail

Hewlett 50 Arts Commissions
William and Flora Hewlett Foundation

The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation recently announced a new five-year, $8 million addition to its grantmaking in support of the performing arts. In celebration of the foundation's fiftieth anniversary, the Hewlett 50 Arts Commissions will enable San Francisco Bay Area nonprofits to work with exceptional artists from around the world to create and premiere new works of performing arts in local communities. This year's awards will support music composition, with future years focused on other disciplines: theater, dance, folk and traditional arts, and film and media. Organizations do not need to be arts producers or presenters, and nonprofits working on diverse issues are eligible to receive grants. Applications are due by April 14. Full details are online at
