The Gardner Cultural Council will be accepting standard grant applications as of October 1, 2020 and field trip grant applications for projects to be completed in 2021. The application is available on line only at https://www.mass-culture.org/Gardner. The Gardner Cultural Council’s priority is to fund cultural programs that benefit children, families, and the Gardner community at large. Each application will be evaluated on its own merits. Those that meet council guidelines and benefit Gardner residents will be funded in part or in full. Applications must be completed and submitted by November 16, 2020.
