One advantage of being a CFO Agency Partner is the opportunity to receive grants through our Endowment Building Grants Program. The project is provides small grants to our Agency Partners that allow them to implement creative activities and programs that promote endowment building.
Last year, the Springfield Regional Arts Council received a grant for $1,287 that they used for a Valentine’s Day tie-in event called “Hearts for the Arts” on February 6. The event invited the community to view and bid on more than 100 items donated to support the Arts Council’s Endowment Fund in a silent auction. Funds from the endowment building grant also helped pay for a mailed invitation that included a promotional DVD. You can learn more about SRAC’s “Hearts for the Arts” event on their website.
