Scottsdale Arts Increases Community Arts Grants By 66%
Scottsdale Arts is excited to announce a 66 percent increase in the annual award pool for its Community Arts Grant Program, which provides funding to Scottsdale and Valley nonprofit arts and cultural organizations for projects that serve the Scottsdale community. The grants are funded by the City of Scottsdale through Scottsdale Arts' management services agreement.
Scottsdale Arts awarded $100,000 in July 2018 to 19 organizations for general operating support and projects for the 2018-19 fiscal year, based on the recommendations of the Community Arts Grant Panel, an independent group of volunteers.
Additional information and guidelines for the Community Arts Grant program are available online at www.ScottsdaleArts.org/about/community-arts-grant-program.
Through its dynamic partnership with the City of Scottsdale, the nonprofit Scottsdale Arts (formerly known as Scottsdale Cultural Council) creates diverse, inspired arts experiences and educational and outreach opportunities for the community, while fostering the active engagement of individuals, businesses, education and government with the arts. Since its founding in 1987, Scottsdale Arts has grown into a regionally and nationally significant, multi-disciplinary arts organization offering an exceptional variety of programs through four acclaimed operating branches - Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA), Scottsdale Public Art and Scottsdale Arts Education & Outreach - serving more than 400,000 participants annually.
