Several organizations and nonprofits with East Dallas ties have received grants recently.
The Moody Fund for the Arts awarded $450,000 in grants this year to 52 small arts organizations; this brings the total to $1,530,000 given to 79 organizations since 2018.
Funds are distributed to organizations within the following categories: general program and operating cost support; new works, commissions and unique presentations; capacity building; community focus performances/artist-in-residency programs; and cultural equity and new initiatives.
“We set out to create a unique endowment that would support the growing, diverse and vibrants small arts community in Dallas,” Francie Moody-Dahlberg, the executive director and chairman of the Moody Foundation, says in a news release.
The Dallas Foundation also announced $1.5 million in grants to 54 organizations, awarded from Field of Interest Funds, which align with a donor’s interest in a specific cause.
“Field of Interest Fund Grants allow The Dallas Foundation to make a significant impact across a significant number of Dallas-area nonprofits,” Matthew Randazzo, the president and CEO of The Dallas Foundation, says in a news release.
