With the aim to help local artists survive the pandemic, the Culver City Arts Foundation is set to award a second round of ‘resiliency microgrants’ to keep the proverbial – and maybe even the actual – lights on for the creative economy.
Culver Arts Foundation’s Vice-Chair Sehnita Joshua Mattison said that grant recipients will be informed on Giving Tuesday, as the Foundation joins in the spirit of giving that is encouraged after the surge of consumerism that ramps up from Black Friday through Cyber Monday. “In fact, we even increased the amount we intended to give because we wanted to include as many recipients as possible,” said Sehnita.
Along with joining in the giving campaign, Culver Arts hopes donors will still choose the organization as the third round of the Arts Resiliency Fund is already being planned. With increased donations, Culver Arts hopes to expand the campaign to include nonprofits with grants of up to $5000.
All donations are fully tax-deductible, and 100% of the funds will directly support the arts. To leverage the full amount of your donation and avoid vendor fees, you can mail a check to Culver City Arts Foundation, PO Box 4521, Culver City, CA 90231.
