About this grant

This grant will provide the Flint Cultural Center Foundation funds for capital improvements to The Whiting, which were identified through a detailed facility assessment. Though the facility is generally in good condition, the upgrades and maintenance work will improve the overall operations of the facility and address a number of aging systems. These facility needs are typical of a venue that welcomes large groups of visitors over time. The Whiting is home to the Flint Symphony Orchestra and offers a broad range of public performances and activities including Broadway plays, comedy shows, high school graduations and holiday programs. More than 70,000 people attend events at The Whiting each year.
