in Starved Rock Country!

The Arts of Starved Rock Country Fund was established to provide a non-competing neutral hub and financial support to charitable organizations and agencies engaged in the world of art throughout Starved Rock Country.

This program is partially supported by grants from the Illinois Arts Council Agency and the National Endowment for the Arts. We are an open, welcoming partner with a place for every artist to connect and showcase their work. Workshops are also offered for topics such as capacity building; idea sharing; and small business development; while social gatherings provide networking opportunities and the convenings of artists, organizations, producers and presenters.

 

On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors of the SRCCF, we wish to extend our sincere thanks to the Trustees of the OmniArts organization, who chose to transfer the assets to us to create The Arts of Starved Rock Country Fund upon closing that organization.

 

Financial donations may also be mailed or made in person at our office 241 Marquette St, LaSalle, IL 61301. If you prefer to make a financial contribution by mail, please make your check payable to SRCCF. For more information about The Arts of Starved Rock Country Fund, please contact the Fund Administrator, Amanda Weygand Zehr at amanda@srccf.org

.Starved Rock Arts.

There are many things that come to mind when we think of a great community. Among them most certainly is the enjoyment of art, music, film and dance. The Arts of Starved Rock Country Fund provides financial support to charitable organizations and agencies engaged in the world of art throughout the Starved Rock Country region and provides a non-competing, neutral hub that allows local artists to connect and engage with the arts and cultural organizations in Lasalle, Bureau and Putnam Counties.

 

We are a welcome partner to the Illinois Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts who provide partial funding to us for general operating support and community arts access grants. We encourage you to join us at an upcoming event and frequently visit this website

.Make a Donation.

Initially made possible by a generous gift from the former Illinois Valley Fine Arts Trust and the Omni Arts Trust, the Arts of Starved Rock Country Fund is gaining recognition at the state and federal level. Through the partnership of the Illinois Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, we are able to award grants to local arts organizations through a competitive process twice each year. Funds to support those grants and other activities also rely on contributions from generous donors throughout the region.
