Grants Made to Support Local Arts and Creative Community during COVID-19

In General

Through the COVID-19 Arts and Creative Community Assistance Fund, which is supported by a group of local funders and housed at the Community Foundation, 50 grants of $10,000 each were recently approved.

In partnership with CultureSource, the grants are being deployed to Arts & Culture organizations that range in size from large to small and in location from St. Clair to Hamtramck. The Community Foundation program team is shifting its focus from recovery to innovation within the sector, while also determining what long-term planning will be required to ensure the success of these important cultural treasures in our community.

The COVID-19 Arts and Creative Community Assistance Fund is supported by the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, DeRoy Testamentary Foundation, Ford Foundation, Kresge Foundation, Leinweber Foundation, Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Foundation, Peck Foundation, and William Davidson Foundation.
