J.M. Kaplan Fund Offers Grants to Nonprofit Publishers



Furthermore grants assist nonfiction books having to do with art, architecture, and design; cultural history, the city, and related public issues; and conservation and preservation. We look for work that appeals to an informed general audience, gives evidence of high standards in editing, design, and production, and promises a reasonable shelf life.

The grants, ranging roughly from $1,500 to a maximum of $15,000, are awarded twice annually with application deadlines of March 1 and September 1. Funds apply to such specific publication components as writing, research, editing, indexing, design, illustration, photography, and printing and binding.

Book projects to which a university press, nonprofit or trade publisher is already committed and for which there is a feasible distribution plan are usually preferred.  Recipients of Furthermore grants are located throughout the U.S. and abroad but mainly in New York City and New York State and its Hudson Valley.

Grant applicants must be 501(c)3 organizations; applications from individuals cannot be accepted. They have included civic and academic institutions, museums, independent and university presses, and professional societies. While grant recipients must have 501(c)3 status, the book projects assisted by Furthermore sometimes result in trade publication.
