The Northern New York Community Foundation invites non-profit organizations or government entities to apply for up to $20,000 in grant funding for any live orchestral music performances to be held in the Watertown area. The concerts must take place after September 1, 2016, but before July 31, 2017. The fund is made possible through the Community Foundation’s orchestral music endowment for Watertown area performances.
Organizations such as the Orchestra of Northern New York, Trinity Concert Series and Northern Choral Society received grant funding for performances during the 2015-2016 concert season. The performances also received additional support from the Community Foundation’s board-designated grantmaking fund. To be considered for grant funding, each orchestral entity must have at least 20 performers and include an instrumental component.
The deadline to submit a grant application for consideration is no later than April 22, 2016. For more information, please contact Max DelSignore, Community Foundation assistant director, at (315) 782-7110 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
