$75,000 Matching Grant to support arts organizations during COVID-19
Ten organizations, One challenge!
Southwest Michigan Symphony is one of ten Arts organizations that have formed an alliance for a unique fundraising challenge. These ten organizations serve communities throughout Berrien County, providing experiences in various arts disciplines for all ages. From glass-blowing to early childhood music, from captivating concerts to engaging workshops and classes, from cutting edge theatre to breathtaking galleries.
The Berrien Community Foundation (BCF) has a long history of supporting the arts and wanted to ensure the arts remain a vibrant part of our community. Seeing the challenges we face with the pandemic, BCF secured an anonymous donor who shared the love of the arts and brought us together for this challenge. This donor has pledged $75,000 through BCF as a challenge gift to support the Arts organizations noted below. Collectively, we are the beating heart of cultural enrichment in Berrien County and we need your support in continuing our respective missions.
