Funding for Washington, DC Area Writers, Artists and Composers

The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation has awarded VCCA a grant to support residences for artists, writers and composers from the greater Washington, DC area. Since 1991, the Cafritz Foundation has supported nearly 150 visual artists, writers, and composers at VCCA. 

The Morris & Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation is the largest independent grantmaking foundation focused exclusively on the Washington Metropolitan area. The Foundation is the legacy of Morris Cafritz, one of Washington’s leading commercial and residential real estate builders from the early 1920’s to the mid-1960’s. Morris Cafritz was an outstanding civic leader known for his generosity. He established the Foundation in 1948. His wife, Gwendolyn, one of Washington’s leading hostesses in the post World War II years, was President of the Foundation from 1964 to 1988. Their eldest son, Calvin Cafritz, is currently Chairman, President and CEO.

DEADLINE: MAY 15, 2012
