Charlevoix, MI, October 31, 2019


Charlevoix Circle of Arts has been awarded a grant of $13,500 from the State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) and the National Endowment for the Arts. The grant was awarded through the MCACA peer review process and was one of 659 applications to compete for MCACA fiscal year 2020 funding.

 “This grant is so important because it provides support for administrative and operational costs that are essential to maintaining the programs and services of the Circle of Arts,” explained Sarah Matye, Executive Director. “We are so grateful for the state’s support of arts and culture opportunities that help to enhance the quality of life for those in our community,” said Matye.  

Organizations receiving a MCACA grant award are required to match those funds with other public and private dollars. Local contributions to the Charlevoix Circle of Arts received from individuals, members, businesses and foundations will help to meet the matching grant requirements.
