The Sustainable Arts Foundation supports artists and writers with children. We make annual unrestricted cash awards to individuals; at least half of these awards are made to applicants of color. We also support artist residencies in their efforts to make their programs more family-friendly. The Sustainable Arts Foundation was founded in 2010 by Caroline and Tony Grant. We were inspired largely by the example of Tony’s late father, the painter and sculptor James Grant, who continued to work in his Folsom Street studio after becoming a parent (often bringing Tony and his brother along to play or nap in a corner).
