Rainbow Fund Mini-Grants are being made available to area residents. The grants are designed to give some financial support to people interested in pursuing some aspect of the arts.
Grant applications are available online at www.chewelahartsguild.org, the Chewelah Library, the Flowery Trail Coffee House or by calling Kay Lupton, 936- 2010.
The fall funding deadline is October 9, 2016. This is an earlier date that in past years so grants can be awarded earlier.
[ihc-hide-content ihc_mb_type=”show” ihc_mb_who=”reg” ihc_mb_template=”-1″ ]The Guild is especially proud of this on-going project for several reasons. First, it follows our Mission to support the Community by supporting the Arts. In some cases the grants make a program possible that may not otherwise be available.
Secondly, the students who receive some money for lessons or a musical instrument are asked by the Guild to do something for the community. This “pay it forward concept” doubles the benefits both for the children and the town.
Finally, it is an example of local money staying and helping local people. Well over $1,000 is awarded every year.
The Rainbow mini-grants are funded in several ways.
The Guild hosts specific events where the proceeds are directed to the Rainbow Fund. Also gifts in the form of memorial contributions, endowments or donations are always welcomed.
The Chewelah Arts Guild is busily doing last minute planning for the Spokane Symphony’s performance at the Chewelah Peak Learning Center. We’ll see you there.
