There is hereby established a Cultural Equity Endowment Fund.
Any unexpended balances remaining in the allocation to the Fund at the close of any fiscal year shall be deemed to be provided for a specific purpose within the meaning of Charter Section 9.113 shall earn interest on these balances, and shall be carried forward and accumulated in the Fund for the purposes set forth in this Chapter 68.
Subject to the budgetary and fiscal provisions of the Charter, the San Francisco Arts Commission is hereby authorized and directed to expend the monies appropriated to or received by the Fund and to implement and administer the Fund programs.
The monies in the Fund shall be expended for the following four programs:
Cultural Equity Initiatives Program;
The Program for Commissions to Individual Artists;
Project Grants to Small and Mid-size Organizations; and
The Facilities Fund.
The Arts Commission may evaluate and review the demands for and by cultural and artistic programs and the level of resources available for such programs, and may determine the percentage of Fund monies allocated to each of the four programs. The Arts Commission shall not be required to fund all four programs every year if the Arts Commission determines, after review and evaluation, that demand for and by the program does not warrant expenditure.
