SANDWICH CULTURAL COUNCIL SEEKS NEW MEMBERS
(Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info)
MISSION STATEMENT: The Sandwich Cultural Council is the local arm of the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Members are volunteers who are responsible for making decisions on how to award money granted by the MCC in ways that will serve local cultural needs. We solicit and review grant requests annually and award funding to individuals or organizations seeking to provide programs that will enrich, educate, and/or entertain the residents of Sandwich. We try to ensure that the programs selected represent as many of the arts and sciences as possible and that they target a cross-section of the Sandwich community. In addition, the Council itself may apply to the State for a grant to sponsor a fund raising event. The Council meets regularly during the year to fulfill its duties.
The Sandwich Cultural Council is part of the Massachusetts Cultural Council's network of 329 Local Cultural Councils serving all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth. The LCC Program is the largest grassroots cultural funding network in the nation, supporting thousands of community-based projects in the arts, sciences, and humanities every year. The state legislature provides an annual appropriation to the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, which then allocates funds to each community.
THE SANDWICH CULTURAL COUNCIL is now accepting on-line applications for 2018 Massachusetts Cultural Council Grants. Individuals, organizations and schools are invited to apply for grants for performances, exhibits, lectures and workshops in the arts, music, humanities and sciences. Go on-line to www.mass-culture.org for details. Applications may be submitted on-line September 1 thru October 16, 2017
