How does this work?

Fill out a quick form with some details about your project and why you need funding. Applications are currently open. Recipients will be notified in Spring 2021.

How do I apply?

You don't need anything special to apply. Just fill out a quick form. It'll probably take you 10-15 minutes. Done is better than perfect.

Should I apply?

Yes. Decapital funds individuals or small group of folks with a track record of making things. Creative and social projects of all kinds are welcome. You don't need to be a professional activist or have a fine art background to apply. You don't need 501(c)3 non-profit status or business plan. Actually if you have those things, this probably isn't for you. A track record of successful projects is more important than anything else. You may include links to previous projects in your application.

What kinds of projects?

Beautiful, creative, and political projects. Decapital funds a wild variety of projects—protest art, DIY engineering, creative campaigns, fringe art, unusual things, participatory events, projects that challenge structures of power. We mainly provide funding for projects that are otherwise difficult to fund.


Your project should be been seen by people! Decapital selects projects that have some aspect of public-ness to them—photos, videos, performance, news stories, a written summary.

What is Decapital?

Decapital's funding comes from a small collective of individuals who contribute a portion of their income each month. We're organizers, artists, and diy'ers. It's an affinity group that pools resources to provide grants for creative trouble makers.
