August 03, 2012
The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, an organization that aims to improve the quality of human life through creative and considerate grantmaking, recently announced $3.8 million for three institutions that are part of Michigan's Flint Cultural Center.
"From the Foundation's earliest days, we've believed that arts and cultural activities are crucial to building a socially inclusive and vibrant community," said William S. White, president and CEO of the Mott Foundation. "The Flint Cultural Center, with support from Mott, continues to expand on that blueprint for the future of Genesee County."
The Flint Cultural Center Corporation (FCCC) will receive a one-year, $1,550,000 grant for The Whiting, the Sloan Museum and the Longway Planetarium. The Flint Institute of Music (FIM) is set to receive $740,100 for the Flint Youth Theater, the Flint Symphony Orchestra and the Flint School of Performing Arts. Additionally, the grant package included a $1,549,924 grant for the Flint Institute of Arts.
Arts programs and other organizations that rely on grants to support valuable projects might benefit from a nonprofit financial management
solution that enables them to generate accurate reports demonstrating their financial needs.
