About this grant

During the past decade, the Flint Cultural Center Corporation has worked to strengthen its member institutions – Whiting Auditorium, Sloan Museum, Longway Planetarium and the Flint Youth Theatre – and promoted collaboration in providing high quality services to improve the overall quality of life for residents and particularly students in the Flint and Genesee County area.Funding will enable the organization to solidify core operations; expand marketing and public relations; increase revenue; broaden development and fundraising activities; and enhance and increase programs and activities. This includes a grant increase to support efforts to sustain the forward momentum the cultural center is making toward implementing its strategic plan and long-term master plan for the campus, which includes acquisition of land directly adjacent to its campus to allow for future expansion.
