The Crusade Engagement Grant awarded $10,000 annually in 2014, 2015, and 2016 to the applicant with the most innovative idea to build audiences for photography.

The Crusade Engagement Grant supports artists to create unique, approachable programs that bring new audiences to photography and allow them to engage with art in a meaningful way. The goal of this grant is to empower artists to focus on creating demand for art, and thereby encourage systemic changes to create a new crop of art lovers, patrons and collectors.

This $10,000 grant aims to generate and highlight innovations and to underwrite the execution of the best idea.
