The Foundation received 280 applications for funding in its most recent grant cycle totaling $1 million in requests. With only $150,000 in total funding available, the competition was significant. After a rigorous month-long review by panels of local artists, 67 visual, performing and literary artists and filmmakers were awarded grants. Since its formation, the Alexa Rose Foundation has granted over $390,000 to 182 local artists. In addition, the Foundation recently announced it will provide needed space for local artists to create, manage and share creative work within a facility to be called the Carnegie Studios.
