BIG NEWS: HUGE Improv Theater just received a Minnesota State Arts Board grant! For $34,706! It’s the first year of a 4-year commitment. It’s for general operating. It’s incredible.
So many people contributed to the work necessary to apply for the grant. That’s in addition to all of those who contribute to the programming, administration, artistic quality and overall strength of community we serve. It all was part of persuading the grant panel. Thank you!
HUGE is one of 167 organizations of all sizes in Minnesota that were approved to receive grants. See the Arts Board’s Web site for the full list: http://www.arts.state.mn.us/grants/2016/2016-awarded-opsup.htm.
This is all made possible by the voters of Minnesota, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. So thanks to voters for passing the Legacy Amendment, and thanks to our legislators for making sure those funds get to arts organizations of all sizes via MSAB and the regional arts councils.
