KFW’s grantmaking will be suspended this fall as the organization undergoes an assessment in order to better meet the needs of feminist artists in a changing world.
We remain committed to building on the power of art to increase awareness about feminist issues and create social change. We are very excited to plan for our future and look forward to returning to grantmaking in Spring 2024. Read more about our plans here.

It will be helpful to read our eligibility guidelines prior to considering applying for a KFW grant.
The AMA grant supports feminist artists and organizations in Kentucky to engage individuals and communities in artmaking that directly advances positive social change.
Applicants should be able to demonstrate their commitment to feminism, their ability to engage community members, and have a concrete plan for positive social change through arts-based activities.
Applicants may request funds for a range of art activities that address social change including but not limited to: community participation in creating art; collaborative or individualized artmaking with women and/or girls, artists’ creation of new work in a community context; and arts education programs primarily focused on women or girls.
Applicants to the AMA grant program, like the AE grant program, should show high artistic quality in the work sample, and should be able to demonstrate their commitment to feminism and their understanding of the relationship between art and social change. Both grant programs are arts-based and feminist in nature.
