Jul 10, 2017

Every year, the Fairfield Cultural Alliance offers Cultural Trust Fund mini grants to nonprofit organizations.

These small grants will be awarded to cover expenses for creating events or projects that benefit the art and/or culture of Fairfield. Now is the time to apply.

Grant applications will be reviewed on the following criteria:

• Benefit to cultural tourism of Jefferson County;

• Benefit to, and number of residents in Jefferson County who will be affected;

• Past grants to one’s organization;

• Grants from the Cultural Trust Fund will be used for programming and operations;

• Preference may be given to events/programs within the state-designated Cultural District.

The Fairfield Cultural Trust Fund was established in 2006 by the Fairfield Cultural Alliance in collaboration with The Greater Jefferson County Foundation.

The goals of the Cultural Trust Fund are to help qualified organizations provide cultural, civic, and educational programs, to encourage individual and corporate involvement through gifts and bequests, and to administer and invest funds for the creation of perpetual opportunities and services.

Those interested are invited to apply to the Fairfield Cultural Alliance before Sept. 30. Funds will be disbursed in November after applications are reviewed for acceptance.
