ACAC has received a grant of $2,000 from the Polk County Cultural Coalition for our 2017 Children's Art Project. We are tremendously grateful to PCCC for this leadership grant, which will enable us to continue serving local youth by providing art experiences at little or no cost to the participants.
The Oregon Cultural Trust awarded Ash Creek Art Center a $7,424 grant to hire a Program Assistant, our first staff, to help with events, memberships, and other operational support.
The Umpqua Bank Charitable Foundation has granted $2,500 for ACAC's Children's Art Project through its Community Giving Program. This grant will help to provide art opportunities for the youth in our community.
The Fred W. Fields Fund of the Oregon Community Foundation has awarded the Arts Center a grant of $1,500 for general operating support through its Small Arts & Culture grant program. This important grant will greatly strengthen our ability to plan ahead and keep all of our programs strong throughout the course of the next year.
Funds from the Oregon Community Foundation will allow the Arts Center to add part time contract staff to help organize and grow the orgranization.
ACAC is deeply grateful to MINET for the many hours of airtime it has provided for our public service announcement. Thanks to their generosity, many more people now know about ACAC and our free classes for children and families.
