Galva Arts Council January 2018 Newsletter
On January 2nd, the Galva Arts Council found out that we are one of 15 recipients of the Levitt Foundation’s Amp [Your City] Matching Grant. This grant will match up to $25,000 in funds to put on our summer concert series.
Other cities receiving the grant include:
Berea, KY; Carson City, NV; Chattanooga, TN;
Escondido, CA; Middlesboro, KY; Ocala, FL;
Santa Fe, NM; Sheboygan, WI; St. Johnsbury,
VT; Stevens Point, WI; Trenton, NJ; Utica, NY;

Out of these winners, 11 out of the 15 were previous recipients of the grant. The winners were displayed on an electronic billboard in Times Square in New York City!
With the Levitt Grant, every $1 donated, turns into $2 of programming. We have donation buttons on our website and Facebook as well as jars at Delta on the Square and Crescent City Tap. You may also mail donations.
