MSF has awarded modest annual GRANTS beginning in 1990. During Sybil Shearer’s lifetime, recipients were proposed by her and approved by the Trustees.
Funding is focused on those artists and arts organizations whose work is congruent with the artistic discipline and creative individuality embodied in Shearer’s and Morrison’s own work. When the Trustees’ attention is called to artists and arts organizations that demonstrate those ideals, an invitation to submit a grant proposal may be offered. Grants are given only to or through 501(c)3 organizations. The Morrison-Shearer Foundation does not accept unsolicited proposals.
