@THESPADY: Keeping Culture Alive During COVID with CARES Funding

The Spady Cultural Heritage Museum was one of three nonprofits arts organizations in Palm Beach County and one of 855 organizations nationwide to receive funding from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

The Spady Museum will receive $50,000 from the NEA to support staff salaries, fees for artists or contractual personnel, and facilities costs. Announced on July 1, 2020, the grant funding will offset some of the revenues that have been lost to cancellations of fundraising and programming events, due to the COVID-19 pandemic response. Boca Raton Museum of Art and Palm Beach Opera also received funding.The Spady Museum received additional funding stemming from the CARES Act: $7,500 from Florida Humanities Council and $1,929 from Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs.… Your Support Helps Too!
