Creative Ventures Fund

The richness of Alaska's cultures and the inventiveness of its artists and arts organizations bring a wealth of creative capital to our state. The Rasmuson Foundation seeks to expand the creative reach of cultural organizations with a new grant program that encourages innovation and exploration.

The Creative Ventures Fund provides matching grants to augment and enrich the programs offered by Alaska's arts and cultural organizations. Creative Venture awards are investments in an organization's artistic future. They are grounded in the Rasmuson Foundation's belief that, through the arts, we unleash the power of the imagination, stimulate innovation and discover new horizons.
