What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Grassroots Grant Program

Funded by the NC Arts Council, this competitive grant program supports BIPOC organizations or those serving multicultural communities. The ACGG markets the opportunity, manages to application portal and process, provides assistance to organizations submitting applications, selects panelists in consultation with the High Point Arts Council, distributes the funds to awardees, and facilitates the grantee reporting process.

Population(s) Served

The Festival Grant program provides seed funding for arts-based community festivals for a wide range of events, from art exhibitions to cultural festivals, which enrich Guilford County residents' lives and attract visitors to the vibrant Greater Greensboro area. The program is vital to fostering and preserving the region's cultural tapestry.

Population(s) Served

The Organizations of Color Cohort program is a long-term commitment to supporting and enhancing the capacity of historically underserved organizations and their leaders to create stronger arts leaders of color for future generations.

Population(s) Served

A substantial component of The ACGG marketing strategy, the primary focus of which is to amplify and elevate the arts community to support arts organizations and to build audiences for the arts. Tools utilized include social media campaigns, Arts In Focus, eblasts ad placement, and events calendar. With the online Events Calendar showcasing over 650 events since its rollout last year, and a distribution of over 2000 directories featuring 93 Guilford County arts organizations, the Arts Across Guilford campaign is making a big impact.

Population(s) Served

Understanding mission alignment, impact and financial sustainability, marketing, board/staff development and capacity, fund development, and business/operating models. Once cohorts are completed, we will work with organizations on follow-up benchmarking assessments.
This program also includes a technology cohort designed to assess technological needs and provide professional mentoring to create a technology plan.

Population(s) Served

The ACGG is piloting a two-year program to meet the pressing need to enhance academic performance for 3rd grade students in Title One classrooms. Participating classroom teachers in collaboration with teaching artists will plan and deliver lessons that provide authentic, arts-integrated learning experiences aligned with curriculum standards.

Population(s) Served

Launched in January 2024, the Professional Development Hub was created to offer artists-entrepreneurs in our community opportunities to build essential business acumen through classes and workshops, mentorship programs, coaching sessions, and networking events.
Artist Support Grants: Funded by NCAC, this competitive grant provides artists with funding for new creative projects or professional development activities.
The Artist Salon program was created to highlight Artist Support grantees through artist-led lectures, interviews, and demonstrations. In its pilot year, 10 Artist Support grantees will participate.

Population(s) Served

Offer long-term solutions to arts organizations that need administrative services in a cost-effective structure. For $40 per hour, we provide accounting services to small and emerging arts organizations. These services include accounts payable, accounts receivable, monthly bank reconciliations, cash flow analysis, budget development and tracking, Audit + 990 preparation, and HR services.
This program falls under Shared Services and is critical to building equity and sustainability. Rather than encouraging the formation of a new nonprofit, The ACGG will act as a fiscal sponsor to individuals or LLCs whose work is within the framework of a social enterprise.

Population(s) Served

Bringing artists, arts groups, and community members together in person and to the "Zoom" table with topical Lunch and Learns, ranging from how to best work with interns to what is happening in the arts that will impact the community.
