Pew Center for Arts & Heritage announces latest grant recipients
June 27, 2013
Usually once a quarter, foundations across the globe will reveal that they were generous and gave grants to a number of charitable organizations. Sometimes the nonprofits have many different central aims, though other times they have goals in common.
This was the case for the organizations that the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage recently announced were recipients of project grants during their latest grant cycle. The foundation gave more than $6.5 million to 52 arts initiatives that are located close to Philadelphia.
Included in this list of groups and individuals honored are the Mural Arts Program, the Montgomery County Community College's production of "Then and Now," poet Jenn McCreary and the Mann Center for the Performing Arts' new music festival, among many others.
"It's tremendously gratifying for the Center to so substantially support this vibrant mix of projects and artists," Pew's Executive Director Paula Marincola noted. "These grants attest to the quality and scope of the cultural scene here, and will bring great pleasure and exciting experiences to our region's many audiences."
The foundation has been in operation since 2005 and has been known to focus on various nonprofits in the southeastern sector of Pennsylvania.
