The Cape and Islands Veterans Outreach Center has received its first-ever grant of $2,500 from the Massachusetts Cultural Council through its “Festival and Projects” Program.
This grant signifies that the Cape and Islands Veterans Outreach Center provides significant public value through its programs and services, said Barbara-Anne Foley, Outreach and Program Manager.
“In addition to the important vital services we offer, we know our veterans enjoy arts and cultural events as well,” she added. “We could not be prouder to receive this grant that enables us to offer this inaugural artistic endeavor, our first film screening, with and for veterans. We look forward to hosting more projects that encourage veterans to participate and discover their own creative gifts!”
Massachusetts Cultural Council has a budget of $15.7 million, including an appropriation of nearly $14 million from the state of Massachusetts and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and other sources. The agency also runs the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund in partnership with MassDevelopment.
Mass Cultural Council funds reach every community in the Commonwealth. Its mission is to promote excellence, education, access and diversity in the arts, humanities, and sciences, to improve the quality of life for all Massachusetts residents and contribute to the vitality of our communities and economy.
The Cape and Islands Veterans Outreach Center is a tax-deductible, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, celebrating its 40th year of serving the veterans community by providing the services and programs they need to successfully transition back to their communities anywhere in the region.
