In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the J. Paul Getty Trust initiated a $10 million fund to support Los Angeles-based nonprofit museums and visual arts organizations. Administered by the California Community Foundation (CCF), the fund awarded $2 million in emergency relief grants to 80 diverse small and mid-sized arts organizations across Los Angeles County in spring 2020.
At the same time the Getty began to work with foundations across LA to create a pooled fund to support the entire arts sector, including the performing and literary arts. This effort soon attracted national funders to join them. The result is the $38.5 million LA Arts Recovery Fund, the largest-ever pooled private investment for LA arts nonprofits in Los Angeles County. Grants are administered by CCF and will provide significant flexible operating support for a minimum of two years to a select number of small and mid-sized LA County arts organizations with projected annual operating budgets of $10 million and below prior to March 2020. Grants will be announced in May 2021.
