The Foundation requests that previous grantees allow a one-year hiatus prior to reapplication. This allows our grants to be available to an even wider number of applicants. Applicants may only submit one proposal per year.
Grants from the Puffin Foundation, Ltd. can only be awarded to permanent residents and citizens of the United States. U.S. citizens whose projects encompass work in other countries are still eligible to apply.
We are not able to provide status reports about the disposition of submitted applications, so PLEASE do not call seeking such information. Applicants will be notified on an ongoing basis about the decision on their application from January 15th through June.
The Puffin Foundation Ltd. continues to make grants that encourage emerging artists whose works might have difficulty being aired due to their genre and/or social philosophy. The Foundation does not have the means to fund large film/documentary proposals, grants for travel, continuing education, or the writing or publishing of books. Average grants are approximately $1,250. The maximum grant size is $2,500.
We thank you again for your interest.
