There are times when something comes along that is incredibly impactful but organizers need a helping hand to fund-raise or collect donations. We are happy to help. Not just a “pass through”, but a meaningful partnership with us as a 501C-3 nonprofit to help projects receive and manage tax deductible donations and/or provide help with applying for grants. If interested, contact us for more information. Some fees apply.

MOSAIC RHYTHMS OF DANBURY GRANT PROJECT
The Danbury Cultural Commission was awarded a planning grant of $10,000 for a mural project in Danbury. A steering committee composed of many Danbury professionals went through a process to choose the design under the direction of Joanne and Bruce Hunter. This project was steered by the Danbury Cultural Commission.
HEALING NEWTOWN THROUGH THE ARTS PROJECT
Immediately following the Sandy Hook tragedy, Newtown was flooded with artistic contributions nationwide, including material donations, services for programs and workshops, and fundraising efforts for the arts. Newtown Cultural Arts Commission is responsible for managing arts related activities for the town of Newtown.
Considering the scope and size of contributions and the limited capacity to manage the response during the crisis, the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut assisted with infrastructure, facilitation, and coordination and immediately worked to convene an Arts Action Team: Newtown Cultural Arts Commission, the Cultural Alliance of Western Connecticut, and the Connecticut Office of the Arts. No fees applied for this project.
