The Asian Women Giving Circle (AWGC) believes culture can play an essential role in any strategy for social change. We support Asian American female artists and women-led organizations in NYC that are using arts and culture to:

-bring about social transformation that prioritizes equity
-raise awareness and catalyze action around critical issues that affect Asian American women, girls and families, and
-highlight and promote women’s central role as leaders, creators, developers and managers of these projects.

In this grant cycle, we anticipate awarding individual grants to 5-8 projects, contingent on available funding. The maximum grant amount is $15,000. For a description of past project grants, please visit our website:

PLEASE NOTE: Starting this year and moving forward, AWGC strongly encourages individual artists to apply. We’re doubling down on our commitment to support bold and innovate artistic vision across all disciplines, particularly in music, dance, drama, literary, performance, visual and interdisciplinary arts.
