About this grant

The Flint Cultural Center Corporation operates Whiting Auditorium, Sloan Museum, and Longway Planetarium on the 30-acre cultural center campus. Approximately 150,000 students and adults will attend or participate in a variety of cultural, educational, and instructional programs and activities this year. In addition to offering national touring artists and musical productions, the corporation also provides educational programming, both onsite and in area 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 grantee’s facilities, member organizations, and educational programming.
