F U R T H E R M O R E      grants in publishing

  

The Furthermore program is concerned with nonfiction book publishing about the city; natural and historic resources; art, architecture, and design; cultural history; and civil liberties and other public issues of the day. Our grants apply to writing, research, editing, design, indexing, photography, illustration, and printing and binding.

We look for work that appeals to an informed general audience; gives evidence of high standards in editing, design, and production; promises a reasonable shelf life; might not otherwise achieve top quality or even come into being; and represents a contribution without which we would be the poorer. Book proposals to which a university press or trade publisher is already committed and for which there is a feasible distribution plan are usually preferred. In geographical reach we are drawnó but in no way limitedó to New York City and to New York State and its Hudson Valley.

Furthermore applicants must be 501(c)3 organizations. They have included civic and academic institutions, museums, independent and university presses, and professional societies. Trade publishers and public agencies may apply for Furthermore grants in partnership with an eligible nonprofit project sponsor. Applications* from individuals cannot be accepted. Grants from $500 to roughly $15,000 are awarded in spring and fall with March 1 and September 1 deadlines. We welcome enquiries.

* The Application Form that you can download is a .pdf file. If you do not have the reader installed on your computer, you can download the free Adobe Reader. Hint: If you have trouble printing the application form from this file, click the check box next to "Print as image" when the Print window opens.
