We’re thrilled to have received $10,000 in general operating support from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council (MRAC). This is exciting not only because it provides much-needed funds to HUGE, but because it reflects the value Minnesota taxpayers place on the arts.
MRAC has been an important source of support for HUGE as we’ve been grown over the last five years. It is an amazing resource as a whole, and is staffed by wonderful individuals.
If you can, reach out to your state elected officials and thank them for making sure small arts organizations like HUGE receive Legacy funds via the Regional Arts Councils. (You can look up the names and addresses of your Senator and Representative here: http://www.gis.leg.mn/OpenLayers/districts )
Also, thanks to the improv community that supports HUGE in countless ways. Your support — of time, talent, and financial contributions — is what convinces a grant panel to approve HUGE’s requests for funding. Your support says much more than words can. And, as usual, it’s hard to find words to fully express our gratitude.
Thanks to all – we are proud to say:
“This activity is funded, in part, by an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund” !!!
