Foundation / Corporation
Grants of up to $5,000 to Alberta nonprofit arts organizations in Calgary and surrounding areas for new, small-scale experiments and tests to address a challenge facing the organization. Applicants must contact program staff to obtain access to the application. Funding is intended to carry the potential for transformational impact and foster a culture of research and development.
The Rozsa Foundation recognizes that in the current economic context, arts organizations are attempting to realize their goals by experimenting with new approaches to producing work, resourcing that work, and sharing it with audiences. In support of nurturing a culture of research and development in the not-for-profit arts community in Alberta, the Rozsa Foundation is proud to offer Experimentation Grants, supporting organizations as they begin to explore new business strategies, testing hypotheses that carry the potential for transformational impact.
Rozsa Foundation Experimentation Grants are designed to provide seed funding for a small-scale new test or experiment, supporting high-learning processes that address a clearly identified challenge facing the organization. These experiments should represent a fundamental shift in the way the organization has been working previously, testing a clearly-articulated hypothesis which, if proven to be correct, could have significant impact moving forward.
Rozsa Foundation Experimentation Grants are designed to support the initial stages of the experiment, promoting a low-risk environment in which to undertake new approaches to work in a manner that is safe-fail in nature, not fail-safe. It is possible for multiple organizations to apply in partnership with one another, so long as clear rationale of the benefit behind a shared experiment is provided.
