Through its commitment to arts in South Florida, Funding Arts Broward (FAB), has awarded $3.6 million to date for organizations such as Japan Arts, Broward Performing Arts Foundation, Old Dillard Foundation, Slow Burn Theatre Company and Symphony of the Americas.

And the funding continues with its 2022 grants.

The volunteer-based organization is now accepting grant applications for 2022 funding. Local nonprofit arts and organizations are encouraged to apply, online, for one of three-tiered program-specific category grants awarding up to $15,000. This year, FAB offers education grants for the first time, dedicated to art appreciation and skill acquisition for grades K-12. The organization’s 2021 grants ranged from $2,500 to $14,500 and benefited 37 recipients, totaling $300,000.

“By supporting visual and performing arts organizations, our goal is to fund creative and innovative performances, productions, and exhibitions that will stimulate the minds and capture the imaginations of our community’s diverse audiences,” said Ed Hashek, president of FAB, which is supported by membership as well as corporate partners such as The Las Olas Company, Casa D’Angelo, BBX Capital, Northern Trust and others. “We’re excited to announce the addition of an Education Grants tier to nurture and inspire future generations of multidisciplinary artists.”

FAB 2022 grants are available for organizations based in Broward, Palm Beach or Miami-Dade County that offer visual, music or performing arts-focused programming in Broward County. The amounts and categories as follows:

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
