Brunswick Arts Council Grants
BAC Grassroots Grants
Eligibility: Must be a 501(c)3, municipality or school. Groups that are interested, but do not have their legal nonprofit designation may have an eligible 501c3 act as a Fiscal Sponsor and partner with this grant. Projects must take place from July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020. Can cover artist fees, travel, certain operating expenses, materials/equipment. Minimum project match is 50/50. Follow-up reporting mandatory.
Considerations: Activities with the broadest impact and outreach, and projects with a proven history of success are favored over unproven programs with narrow audiences. Preference will be given to projects that work with under-served audiences, artists and are collaborative.

Funding Source: North Carolina Arts Council funds in partnership with Brunswick Arts Council.
