The Arts of Starved Rock Country Fund Opens Grant Period for 2022-2023

The Arts of Starved Rock Country Fund, hosted by the Starved Rock Country

Community Foundation, opened its Arts Grant period for 2022-2023 art programs and


Grants are available for non-profit organizations, schools, libraries, and

charitable community groups who support the arts and arts programs. The applications

are available from October 15 through December 1, with grant announcements made in

early January. This program is partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts

Council Agency through federal funds provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.

In the past these grants have helped to fund an array of art projects in our community.

Since 2019, $69,000 has been awarded to organizations, in support of 39 arts related

projects. The 2021-2022 recipients were the LaSalle County Historical Society, Stage

212, Ottawa Concert Association, Poca A Poca, Festival 56, NCI Artworks for the

Seneca and Mendota murals, the Princeton Community Band, Illini State Park, and the

Illinois Valley Symphony Orchestra.

Our mission is to provide grant opportunities, education, networking opportunities and

online support to the Arts community throughout Starved Rock Country. Please contact

us with any questions you may have. We are here to support you, and we'd love to work

with you to make your charitable art project come alive!

Community foundations exist to meet the philanthropic needs of the community and the philanthropic desires of local donors. When we connect those two, wonderful things happen to enhance the quality of life for all of us.​
