REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS FOR FUNDING
Arts and Culture
The City of Cape Town’s Economic and Social Development Department invites applications for funding from Arts organisations and institutions providing services within the Performing Arts sector and located within the municipal boundaries of the City.
The proposals should be project based, promoting adult, youth and children’s theatre productions and focus on relevant issues in the community (i.e. HIV/Aids, Substance Abuse, Cultural Diversity, Gender Equality and Disability). Proposals should also have a strong Training and Development component.
All applicants must have a proven track record.
Applicants should be realistic when drafting their proposals as funding is limited. Budgets should be presented on a project basis for aspects as determined in the Grant-in-Aid Policy.
Applicants should be registered as a not for profit organisation (i.e. NPO, NGO, Section 21, Trust, etc.) Organisations should take note of our Grant-in-Aid Policy, which is available on application. Supporting documents must be certified and should include proof of bank details, NPO certificate, tax clearance certificate, latest municipal rates account and latest audited financial statements.
Application must be made on the prescribed application form, which is available from the 8th Floor, Waldorf Arcade, 80 St Georges Mall, Cape Town or can be downloaded by clicking here. Only original application forms will be accepted.
The closing date for application is Friday, 11 September 2009 at 16:00. Completed application forms should be hand delivered to our offices on the 8th Floor, Waldorf Arcade, 80 St Georges Mall, Cape Town.
