Expansion Arts Fund grants available

Aug 31, 2017

The Maine Community Foundation’s Maine Expansion Arts Fund is accepting applications from nonprofits for grants of up to $5,000 that support indigenous, ethnic or rural arts programs or projects, particularly those that serve areas with limited access to arts events.

The Maine Expansion Arts Fund is the result of a collaborative effort of the National Endowment for the Arts, Lillian M. Berliawsky Charitable Trust, Maine Community Foundation and Maine Arts Commission to strengthen and ensure the future of these artistic traditions. Additional funding is provided through the Elizabeth Laughlin Anderson Memorial Fund at the Maine Community Foundation.

Recent grant recipients include Leaps of Imagination, serving children in Thomaston whose in-school art experiences have diminished due to decreasing public funds. Deadline for grant applications is Friday, Sept. 15. An online application is available at mainecf.org. For more information, call (877) 700-6800.
