Funding Opportunity: Bringing the "Impossible" to Life

Renowned arts supporter David C. Herriman’s legacy ensures that the shows will go on — in enhanced, creative ways.

Northern Kentucky philanthropist David C. Herriman, who passed away last year, was an ardent, highly visible supporter of the arts in Greater Cincinnati. His fund, established in 1986, continues to honor the legacy of his wish “to make possible what would otherwise be impossible” for both large and small arts organizations in Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s eight-county funding region. Herriman’s vision, to support unique and extraordinary arts performances, has a particular focus on new works, the education of youth and performance enhancement through funding to bring in performance artists, directors, choreographers, authors, musicians and more.

The David C. Herriman Fund of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation is seeking requests for proposals. One large grant and up to two smaller grants will be awarded through a competitive process; applicants must be 501(c)(3) organizations in Ohio (Hamilton, Butler, Warren, Clermont counties), Kentucky (Campbell, Kenton, Boone counties) or Indiana (Dearborn County).

The deadline for proposal submission is 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1, 2018. For information on how to apply, please refer to the Request for Proposals.

For further information, contact Lisa Davis Roberts, Senior Program Officer, at 513-768-6113 or
