About this grant
The Flint Cultural Center Corporation operates Whiting Auditorium, Sloan Museum, Longway Planetarium, and Flint Youth Theatre/Bower Theater on the 30-acre Flint Cultural Center campus. Approximately 250,000 students and adults will attend or participate in a variety of cultural, educational, and instructional programs and activities at these cultural center organizations this year. In addition to offering national touring artists and live theater, the corporation also focuses on providing educational programming, both on-site and in the schools. Like other cultural organizations around the country, earned income from admissions and fees, combined with endowment income, does not provide sufficient revenue to maintain facilities and operate programs. This grant will provide operating support to the Flint Cultural Center Corporation for the benefit of its facilities, member organizations, and programs.
