Applications being accepted for Menlo Park Grant for the Arts
Applications are now available from the Menlo Park Community Services Department for the Menlo Park Grant for the Arts (MPGA) for the 2018-19 year.
Ten organizations will be awarded $500-$3,000 toward subsidizing the rental cost of the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center (PAC) for performances from July 2018 to June 2019. The Performing Arts Center seats 492 and contains professional-quality sound and lighting, an orchestra pit accommodating up to 80 musicians, and a full lobby and box office.
The grant was created to increase the accessibility of the PAC by members of the community and to encourage the growth of local artistic groups by providing a high-quality venue at a subsidized cost.
Grants are awarded to a variety of organizations, specifically those that help strengthen the local community and provide material appropriate for all ages, races and religions. Past recipients have included: Menlowe Ballet, Palo Alto Jazz Alliance, and Kepler’s Literary Foundation.
MPGA online applications will be accepted through March 1, 2018.
