Through the General Program, the Foundation undertakes multi-year funding initiatives in changing areas of special interest, makes grants responding to unusual opportunities that advance the broad purposes of the Foundation but do not fall within the areas addressed by its two topical programs, supports efforts to improve and diversify television and radio, and funds arts and cultural organizations in the Chicago region.
Support for arts and cultural organizations in Chicago and the region is an expression of civic commitment to the place where the Foundation has its headquarters and John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur made their home. Grants are designed to help sustain the cultural life of the city and region.
