The Rainin Foundation, Zellerbach Family Foundation and Fleishhacker Foundation collaborate to create the first-of-its-kind Common App for the Arts, streamlining the grant application process for artists and arts organizations.

The Foundation celebrates a decade of partnership with Community Arts Stabilization Trust (CAST) and a milestone in its progress. After 10 years of paying below-market lease rates and raising funds, CounterPulse purchases their building from CAST, securing a permanent space for the arts.
