Grants Provided To Arts Programs By Horizon Foundation

April 13, 2012 by  

The Paper Mill Playhouse and the Visual Arts center of New Jersey recently received grants from the Horizon Foundation. These grants are intended to help organizations fund arts programs for the community.

The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey received $10,000 while the Paper Mill Playhouse received $15,000. Both organizations will be using the money to make the arts accessible to people of all ages. The Paper Mill Playhouse has programs designed for high school students while the Visual Arts Center has exhibits and programs for both adults and children.

These grants are available to many different types of applicants in the area. For example, schools and non-profits in towns like Hainesport are able to apply for this funding. Many organizations set up fund raising events when they are in need of money, and may not know that there are scholarships and grants that they may be eligible for. Obtaining a grant is beneficial as it does not have to be paid back, which makes this funding a better choice than getting a loan.

Companies that offer scholarships may want to advertise their program to local businesses. One of the easiest and most affordable ways of doing this is by using printing services, and flyer printing is often much cheaper than other forms of advertising. The company offering the grant could make up a kit that includes flyers, brochures and other promotional materials. This kit could then be sent to schools and organizations that they are interested in working with.
