The Community Foundation expects to award more than $140,000 during
this grant round. These grants provide support to local programs
that benefit local residents. General Grants fund programs for
education, environment, health and wellness, and youth. Mirza/IPCF
Arts Grants fund programs for the performing or visual arts, music
education, and/or arts education and enrichment. Shulman Grants
focus on Jewish-themed educational, arts and cultural enrichment
programs open to all.
The David and Kay Williams Music Education Grant is in its third
year of awarding money. The grant seeks to support programs that use
innovative technology to provide creative music experiences for K-12
students, regardless of their music training, using a combination of
traditional instruments and music technology. Programs interested in
applying for a Williams Music Education Grant will use the Mirza/Arts
& Culture Grant online application.
“There are so many nonprofit organizations doing good in our
community that need help funding their programs,” said Michele
Evans, Grants & Communications Director.
Last year, IPCF received 92 applications for these
three grant types, with 77 programs receiving a portion of the money
available. “The average grant award of $2,000 really can make a
difference to nonprofit organizations receiving a grant.” Funding
for these grants comes from endowments held at IPCF, designated
gifts and donors to the Annual Campaign.
