Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture Awards Grants for 2017 Projects

The local non-profit arts and cultural community will receive $30,000 in financial support from the Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture.  Requests totaling $45,350 came from 14 organizations. Funding was awarded to 13 non-profit organizations through the Commission’s annual grant program.  The donations help underwrite all types of local arts and cultural projects ranging from festivals, dance performances, art lecture series, art exhibits and musical concerts. The community will benefit from a broad diversity of projects that will reach a wide variety of interests and ages.

Many of these events are free or at a minimal cost to the public thanks to this grant. Organizations are anticipating $119,074 in revenue as well as leveraging $27,300 in anticipated donations to assist in cost recovery. The Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture congratulates the awardees and looks forward to an engaging 2017 season of arts and culture in the Grand Valley.

The grant program is open to any Colorado non-profit agency for arts and cultural projects that are held in Mesa County. The process opens in December and closes in February annually.
