So who’s counting? 2017 was a tough year for many of us, but for Arts In Action, we enjoyed some hard earned success! Even though we have approximately 20 grants that are still pending, we assisted our non profit clients in bringing in over $851,000 in grants and sponsorships this year, (not to mention the $49,500 in sponsorships for BRI and the $2,000+ funds for our first BRI Annual Appeal.) We hope that in the coming weeks we will learn of more grant wins and bring our tally up over the million dollar mark for the 5th year in a row! If your agency is in need of a contract grant writer or just an evaluation of your grant plan, let us know, we are happy to help. We like the “grant win” probably just as much as you do!
