Through our funding programs, the Rozsa Foundation supports arts organizations and leaders to take on initiatives that harness experimentation, innovation, and learning to develop bold, forward-looking approaches to current and future challenges.


We seek to strengthen arts organizations, leaders, and the broader arts community in the Calgary area through five distinct funding programs, each of which supports different types of initiatives. Please visit the individual funding program pages to learn more: 






The amount of funding available, application deadlines, and eligibility criteria vary from program to program. We encourage you to review the full program guidelines (available on each page) for more detailed information.


We fund a wide range of performing, literary, visual and media arts organizations as well as festivals. The focus of our investment is Calgary and the surrounding area, as well as to provincial organizations whose initiatives will directly benefit the Calgary arts sector.


Preference may be given to proposals that are geared toward equity, diversity, inclusion, and accessibility initiatives, those that harness the power of art for social change (especially in partnership with other, non-arts organizations), those that promote inter-organizational collaboration, and those that can use Rozsa Foundation funding to leverage additional funding or other resources, as reflected in the project budget.


PLEASE NOTE: Organizations can submit only one application per funding deadline.
