The Door County Community Foundation is inviting local charities to submit applications for financial support from the Community Foundation’s Arts Fund.
“The arts describe a broad range of creative activities which can stimulate thought and inspire the soul,” says Bret Bicoy, President & CEO of the Community Foundation. “Therein is the purpose of the Community Foundation’s Arts Fund. We hope to promote and celebrate the arts as an integral part of the health of our community.”
The Community Foundation’s Arts Fund supports creative charitable activities in Door County that use the arts to enrich our community and touch the lives of the people of Door County.
“We certainly welcome applications from arts related charities,” says Bicoy. “But we’re also looking for ideas from other kinds of charities that want to use the arts in their more traditional programming.”
Arts Fund materials may be downloaded from the Community Foundation’s Web site at www.doorcountycommunityfoundation.org. Applications and supporting materials must be received at the Community Foundation by Tuesday, July 20.

The Arts Fund is just one of several granting initiatives of the Community Foundation. Others include the Education Fund, Children & Youth Fund, Health & Human Needs Fund, the Environmental Fund, scholarship funds, and donor-advised funds.
“Door County is blessed to have such generous seasonal and year-round residents,” says Bicoy. “Their gifts today, and as a part of their estate plan, are essential to sustaining the quality of life in this community that we love.”
