A reminder from our friends at the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund:
The Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund reminds Wyoming nonprofit and governmental organizations that the postmark deadline for grant applications is October 1, for projects beginning after January 1, 2014.
Application and submission information are available for download from the Cultural Trust Fund website, http://wyospcr.state.
The mission of the Cultural Trust Fund is to serve the citizens of the state by supporting Wyoming’s culture and heritage through grant funding of innovative projects for the enjoyment, appreciation, promotion, preservation and protection of the state’s arts, cultural and historic resources. The program will also look to support and invest in Wyoming institutions that support the state’s culture and heritage.
The Cultural Trust Fund can provide grant funding for all forms of arts and culture, including but not limited to, visual arts, performing arts, crafts, design arts, media arts, literature, folklife and traditional arts, humanities, historic and architectural preservation, community cultural celebrations and cultural corridors. The Cultural Trust Fund does require matching funds for grants, which can be either cash or in-kind, dependent upon the proposed project.
