The Flagstaff Arts Council has announced recipients of the 2015-16 Art & Science Fund grant program. The Board of Directors of the Arts Council met last week to ratify the recommendations of a citizen review panel, providing funds to non-profit organizations in support of art, culture and science programs that serve residents of and visitors to Flagstaff, Arizona. Art & Science Fund grants are funded entirely through a portion of the City of Flagstaff’s Bed, Board and Beverage (BBB) Revenues.
Thirty-three non-profit organizations will receive funding totaling $299,900. General Operating Support (GOS) grants were provided to 24 non-profit arts, culture and/or science organizations that provide direct services to residents of and visitors to Flagstaff, Arizona. Nine grants for Project Support were provided to other non-profit organizations that produce arts, culture and/or science programs that provide a direct public benefit to the community. Funding supports public programs occurring between July 1, 2015, and June 30, 2016.
“The Flagstaff Arts Council is proud to support the hard work and efforts of these prestigious organizations,” said John Tannous, Executive Director of the Arts Council. “We are fortunate to have a vibrant and diverse arts sector and a renowned scientific community that makes Flagstaff an attractive place to live and visit, pumping millions of dollars into our local economy each year.”
