ARTS AND CULTURE
Creative expression and appreciation are the hallmarks of a vibrant community. From art & science museums to the performing arts, donors make an impact supporting the creative process and encouraging art appreciation.
Artes de la Rosa’s award-winning after school program, Artes Academy, provides a unique blend of art instruction, culture and civic engagement for students between the ages of 8 and 18. The academy builds and cultivates character development and life skills, and includes literacy and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics (STEAM) initiatives that are necessary for young people to engage as contributing members to society, classroom and eventually the boardroom. The fine arts disciplines used include theater performance, creative writing, music, dance, and visual arts. Funding is needed for 2020 winter workshops, spring session and summer camp.
Grants of $1,000 to $5,000 are appreciated to support program/exhibit production costs, supplies and facilities expenses.
The Doss Heritage and Culture Center is seeking funding to provide a sustainable museum education program that provides hands-on learning experiences. At the museum, funding will support the development and implementation of curriculum-based tours as well as plans for summer camps for the community and the development of Pioneer Cabin Park Living History project. It will also underwrite a full-time Museum Education Specialist. In schools, funding will provide the Traveling Museum Trunk Program that enables the museum to come into the classroom and will help fund the Field Trip Assistance Program. To sustain the Beyond the Velvet Ropes program $450,000 is needed over the next three years.
Grants of $1,000 to $5,000 will support the Doss Heritage Center to:
- Collect, preserve and exhibit the history of Parker County and Texas
- Support Exhibits
- Provide educational programs and field trip assistance
The Fort Worth Museum for Science and History is poised for the critical next steps that will assure its viability and relevance for the next generation of tech-savvy learners. The museum’s focus is both the development of exciting technologies that will capture guests’ imagination and the infrastructure to support them, along with the stability to sustain them in terms of human capital and financial strength. The centerpieces to the capital campaign are a V-Drome, “I-Fly” theater, and a giant screen “Cube” theater — both offering cutting edge, experiential learning opportunities from a vast library of educational and commercial content. The museum depends on philanthropy and membership for most of its revenue.
Grants from $1,000 to $5,000 are needed to support the innovative experiential learning objectives of the capital campaign. The Mabee Foundation has issued a partial matching opportunity. The Museum needs to raise $3.5 million in order to receive the $2 million from the Mabee Foundation. Their deadline is April 1, 2020.
