About the Culver City Performing Arts Grant Program

Established in 1994, the Culver City Performing Arts Grant Program offers grants to non-profit performing arts organizations in Los Angeles County. Under the purview of the City Council and the Cultural Affairs Commission, the Performing Arts Grant Program is designed to support arts organizations and to bring distinguished cultural programming to Culver City.  The amount of grant funding available is dependent upon the total deposits made into the City’s Cultural Trust Fund each fiscal year. Additionally, the Performing Arts Grant Program is supported by a contribution from Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Theatre, music, and dance performances may be presented. Performances must be available to the general public in a building/facility wholly or partially located in Culver City or controlled/owned by the City of Culver City. Funding may only be used for direct expenses related to the performance in Culver City.  Additionally, applicant organizations must qualify as tax exempt as defined by the IRS at the time of application.

Please direct questions to City of Culver City Cultural Affairs staff at or call (310) 253-6628.
