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!
