Funding for Nonprofit Publishers (Nonfiction)
Through its Furthermore program, the J.M. Kaplan Fund supports nonfiction book publishing about art, architecture, and design; cultural history, the city and related public issues; and conservation and preservation.
The program seeks work that appeals to an informed general audience; demonstrates evidence of high standards in editing, design, and production; and promises a reasonable shelf life.
Individual grants will range from $1,500 to $15,000 and may be used to support writing, research, editing, design, indexing, photography, illustration, and/or printing and binding.
Applicants must be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Trade publishers and public agencies may apply for grants in partnership with an eligible nonprofit sponsor. Recipients of Furthermore grants are located across the U.S. and abroad, but preference will be given to publishers in New York City, New York State, and the Hudson Valley.
See the Furthermore website for complete application guidelines, an FAQ, and complete program information.
