The Riot Fest Foundation (RFF) considers applications from charitable organizations engaged in creative development and community-based enrichment programs that are consistent with the mission and objectives of the RFF. Currently, the RFF focuses its fund allocations on charitable organizations in the Chicagoland area, and applications outside of this region are considered by invitation only.
The average grant allocation is between $1,000 and $5,000. All grant proposals are appreciated and recognized, but please understand that the RFF receives far more applications than it can accommodate.
In general, The Riot Fest Foundation likes to support programs in the areas of art, music, education, community enhancement, and civic leadership.
The RFF funds only charitable, nonprofit organizations exempt from federal income taxation under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The RFF does not provide grants to individuals or religious or political causes.
