Subject: seeking beneficiaries for NEA grant proposal
Oregon State Library
We know you understand how important the arts are for the children in Oregon. And we want you to know that we understand how tight budgets are, which is why we are working extra hard behind the scenes to do what we can to help. We are writing to a select few of our clients and those who have expressed interest in our shows in the past to let you know that we are applying for an NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) “Art Works” grant. Our proposal will enable us to bring you programs at substantially reduced rates (possibly even free) but first we need your help.
We are looking to partner with community organizations (not schools) that are open to the public and that serve underprivileged and/or Deaf and hearing-impaired populations. This can mean kids and families at economic disadvantage (who isn’t these days?) or who wouldn’t otherwise have access to the arts, especially theatre, due to location. In conjunction with our show we’d be offering workshops to teach performing arts. Our proposal aims to reach 40 locations nationwide. Please feel free to pass this email along to any other organization you feel could benefit. Library systems are welcome to request more than one show.
If we are awarded the grant, the shows and workshops would need to be scheduled after January 1st, 2013 and no later than the end of 2015, from September through May. We can decide upon specific dates later. The application is deadline is March 8th.
If you are interested, we’d like to hear from you by Wednesday, February 15th so we can take care of the necessary paperwork. Our goal is to reach as many children as possible. Please give us an estimate of how many kids would be in attendance (we realize this is a ballpark figure) and a brief statement as to why this would benefit your community. In the event we have more than 40 applicants we’ll be choosing partners based on need.
Please know that the NEA needs to know now who the beneficiaries will be, they are funny like that. As much as we’d like to we will not be able to add your location(s) later.
