What is Idea Capital?

Idea Capital pools resources from throughout the arts community to provide direct monetary support for Atlanta artists, performers and cultural producers. The more tax-deductible donations we receive, the more grants we can award. In our first five years, we have made 42 grants totaling over $40,000 to artists working in diverse disciplines. We can only grant what you give.
