The Rainin Foundation is committed to ensuring that the Bay Area continues to be a permanent home for experimentation and inspiration for the arts. We see visionary artists and arts organizations as vital contributors to our local communities and invest in ideas that foster a robust arts ecosystem.

Opportunity Fund

The Opportunity Fund is an invitation only grant that offers support for unique projects that keep arts in the Bay Area thriving.

The goals of the program are to:

  • Achieve a more vibrant arts ecosystem by strengthening the Bay Area as a center for experimentation in the arts and addressing key structural issues that impede the sector’s ability to thrive.
  • Support efforts that leverage the power of the arts, culture and creativity to serve diverse communities in the Bay Area.

Examples of opportunities include:

  • Advocacy
  • Research
  • Conferences
  • Other unique projects outside of our grant programs where Rainin Foundation support would serve as a catalyst
