General Operating Support
The General Operating Support (GOS) program helps fund administrative operating expenses of established nonprofit local arts agencies or single discipline arts organizations with total incomes between $50,000 and $1 million. Arts Council funds may be spent only for non-programmatic, administrative expenses. These can include, but are not limited to, administrative staff salaries, general marketing and fundraising costs, facility rental, utilities, maintenance of the facility, staff travel, or other expenses associated with the general operation of the organization.
The GOS request amount is determined as a percentage of the organization's FY16 Total Income. The request must be matched at least 2:1 by the organization's artistic expenditures.
|Max Request||7-12 percent of total income from last adjusted operating income based on budget size.|
|Match||2:1 cash match by total artistic expenditures|
