The Foundation is committed to supporting visionary small and mid-size arts organizations that are pushing boundaries in content and form while moving ideas from the margins to the mainstream. Our performing arts funding includes two core initiatives, the Visibility Awards and the Impact Grant Program. Both are designed to raise the profile and build the capacity of dance, theater and multidisciplinary organizations engaged primarily in experimental work and dynamic collaborations.

We have established a partnership with the San Francisco Film Society (SFFS) to further our vision of a vibrant hub for artists. Through the SFFS/KRF Filmmaking Grants, the Kenneth Rainin Foundation provides tangible support and funding for projects that uplift the Bay Area filmmaking community.
