Create! Application

On Your Feet Foundation's Create! Birthparent Arts Grant is an opportunity for birthparents to utilize their creative and artistic talents to allow for expression and healing, providing a medium to share feelings, emotions and thoughts as they experience their adoption journey.

Create! encourages projects that use the arts to allow for healing, growth, and advocacy in response to their adoption. Projects funded may include writing, music, performance and visual art.

The application period opens on August 1, 2023 and closes on August 15, 2023 at 5PM CST. Applications received outside of the application period will not be considered. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer.

Be thorough in your responses to the application questions. The more thorough and detailed your plans, the better chance of your project being selected.

*Before applying, please review the information page. Applicants must be willing and able to adhere to the terms of the grant. Applications for projects that are outside the scope of the grant descriptions (i.e. starting a business) will not be considered.
