Arts, Culture and Community Assets

The Daniel Foundation recognizes that a thriving arts community contributes immeasurably to the quality of life in Alabama, weaving together our diverse population in important ways. The preservation of our unique historical, natural and cultural resources in Alabama is an important piece of this cultural backdrop.  Community assets such as greenspace provide vibrancy to our cities and towns, contributing to the overall quality of life with parks and trails that promote outdoor recreation.

Our arts providers need both physical spaces and ongoing operational support to provide quality arts opportunities to their communities.  We specifically seek to assist arts organizations in achieving financial sustainability.  Therefore, preference for operating grants is given to organizations that show strategies focused on this goal.

Our priorities:

• Operational support for arts organizations, particularly those with organizational sustainability strategies.
• Capital needs for arts organizations, with preference given to organizations that the Foundation has supported in the past
• Community heritage, culture and historic preservation
• Projects that preserve greenspace and increase access to nature
