For the month of March, we recognize the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs as Supporter of the Month for endowing 826michigan with an operational/project grant in the amount of $30,000 for the fiscal year 2015.
We sincerely appreciate the support of the MCACA which exists “to encourage, initiate, and facilitate an enriched artistic, cultural, and creative environment in Michigan.” It is our honor to be recognized amongst an array of impressive and effective community-based nonprofits in Washetnaw County and Detroit, MI.
The MCACA makes quite an impact all over the state of Michigan, crafting policy designed to promote arts and culture, and leading state efforts to enrich the arts environment through grant-making. For several years, the MCACA offered us grant support in the form of mini-grants funding. We are delighted by the charge to continue to build upon our service that is demonstrated through a much larger investment in our work.
We deeply believe in the MCACA’s values which emphasize full inclusion in arts and culture programs, that art is vital to live a quality life, arts in education contribute to a complete education, and arts and culture enable human beings to communicate in meaningful ways across neighborhoods and nations.
In our tenth anniversary year, as we reflect on the gifts that have helped to sustain our presence in this community, we also receive in gratitude the gifts that will solidify our work in the next decade and beyond. Thank you for investing in our work and our students, MCACA!
