Grant Description
Grants of up to $3,000 and in-kind support to Minnesota artists, arts groups, nonprofit organizations, Jewish organizations, synagogues, schools, and education programs for arts projects within the Jewish community. Funding is intended to promote and enhance Jewish identity through arts and culture, to support arts and artists who broadly explore Jewish themes, and to assist the greater Minnesota Jewish community in developing a collaborative involvement with the arts.

The Foundation supports projects with or without funding in one of four ways:

  • artistic development and/or production
  • community planning and collaborations
  • research or administrative assistance
  • marketing and outreach assistance

In addition to financial support, Rimon may provide accepted proposals with assistance by:

  • Facilitating a community planning process and assistance in the project’s implementation by helping to secure funding and developing collaborative partners for the project.
  • Providing marketing and outreach assistance to Jewish community institutions, arts organizations, artists, and audiences.
  • Conducting research and planning to connect both artists and art presenters with the Jewish community.

Rimon strives to:

  • Stimulate greater appreciation for the arts in Jewish life.
  • Encourage the interaction of artists and institutions with Judaism.
  • Cultivate collaborations between the Jewish community and non-Jewish institutions.
  • Develop tools for networking and communication for the Jewish community and its artists and to act as a clearinghouse of information for Jewish artists and arts presenters.
  • Foster relations between Jewish artists and the Jewish community’s cultural, educational, and religious institutions.
  • Stimulate interfaith and intercultural dialogue through the arts.
