the maxís kansas city project
maxís kansas city project provides emergency funding & resources to
professionals in the creative arts. Individuals who have made their living
through their art form either professionally or personally and demonstrate a
financial need for medical aid, legal aid or housing.
Criteria for Funding
The non-profit welcomes applications throughout the year
to professionals in the creative arts. There are no deadlines. Funding is
determined according to the individualís need and is disbursed in the form of
a grant not to exceed $1000. Funding will be based on a sliding scale according
to each individualís specific case. All applications are reviewed and given
consideration according to the most critical situations and urgency. We do
accept art or other items that we can auction at one of our events or services
in kind in exchange for our assistance if that is a possibility but is not
the Criteria for Funding here.
Grants are restricted to medical aid, legal aid and housing and will not cover
past debts. We serve as a band-aid to assist the individual through a
financially difficult period and do not provide funding to any one individual on
an ongoing basis, eg., monthly rent. We will make every effort to provide the
necessary resources for the financially distressed individual regarding medical
needs, legal assistance, and assistance in finding housing if needed. An
individual may apply for financial assistance one time in a calendar year.
Selection process is determined by a group of professionals from our advisory
board. Our advisory board is comprised of highly skilled professionals in the
field of health, humanities, housing law and legal aid.
How to apply
You must be a professional in the creative arts. You are required to send a
cover letter expressing the nature of your need with the completed application
form and all necessary supporting information, including proof of monthly
expenses. We will contact you when we receive your application and we will
process it as quickly as possible. Please send a self addressed post card or
your email address so we can inform you when we receive your application. All
information is confidential and that confidentiality will be respected by the
board members who review your information.
Please note that the IRS can request case
histories from us on any individuals we have funded.
