The Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County’s Funding Booster program is free and open to all members. The program is designed to help all grant writers, from beginners to seasoned veterans, learn new skills, and burnish old ones, in order to be as successful as possible in all their grant writing ambitions.


Based on the program designed by the SouthEastern Cultural Coalition, the Funding Booster program will increase your access to news about local, state, regional and national arts and culture funding opportunities, provide monthly workshops, drop-in grant clinics to help you with specific grant writing challenges, one-on-one sessions with grant writing expert Jessica Morozowich, regional meetings and panel discussions with funders, and more.

Under our leadership, this program partners with CT Office of the Arts, CT Humanities, New England Foundation for the Arts, and Office of U.S. Representative Jim Himes, CT 4th District.

The Funding Booster program aims to improve this sector’s ability to apply for and to win grants and to increase the amount of funding coming to our region.


Any CAFC member, or staff member of a CAFC member, may register for this program. Register here.

Open meetings the first Wednesday of each month with development consultant Jessica Morozowich, who reviews current grants opportunities, answers questions, and offers one-on-one consultations with individual. The following meetings are scheduled for 2023. Once you have registered for the program, we also ask you to register for each event and you will be sent the Zoom link.
