Flint Cultural Center Corporation Grant



Organization - Flint Cultural Center Corporation
Grant Amount - $1,650,000
Foundation - Mott Foundation
Grant Purpose - The Flint Cultural Center Corporation operates Whiting Auditorium, Sloan Museum, Longway Planetarium, and Flint Youth Theatre/Bower Theater on the 30-acre Flint Cultural Center campus. Approximately 250,000 students and adults attended or participated in a variety of cultural, educational, entertainment, and instructional programs and activities at these cultural center organizations last year. In addition to offering national touring artists and live theater, the corporation also focuses on providing educational programming, both on-site and in local schools. Like other cultural organizations around the country, earned income from admissions and fees, combined with endowment income, does not provide sufficient revenue to maintain facilities and operate programs. This grant will provide support to the Flint Cultural Center Corporation for general operations, campus facilities, and programs.
