missouri arts council grant
Good news! Yesterday’s mail brought word that Change the Truth has been awarded a Missouri Arts Council grant. MAC, a state agency and division of the Department of Economic Development, provides grants to non-profit organizations to encourage and stimulate the growth, development and appreciation of the arts in Missouri. Recommendations are based on criteria that include artistic excellence, education and outreach, community support and diversity of audience served.
We applied for and will receive money to help underwrite the production cost for the film Lynne will be making of our recent mission to Uganda. The film will debut at our June 12 friendraiser/fundraiser event at the Kansas City Public Library.
We are thrilled to have the support of this very important public arts partner!
