I trust we'll get creative enough to find solutions to that quickly......but, ultimately, we'd love help with becoming a 501c3 ourselves, if that is some of the assistance that you're looking into providing in this process, Guy.Thanks for everything you do,NickOn Wed, Mar 20, 2019 at 1:51 PM Wagner, Rod <[log in to unmask]> wrote:

All—I have been discussing with a contact at the National Endowment for the Arts on how affiliated centers could apply for programming grants. You have to be a 501, I was told.
Can you tell me whether you are or are not a 501©3?
As I mentioned the last time we met, I want to organize the centers into regions, to encourage more collaboration, but I was also thinking these regional groupings might be organized as a 501, in order for them to apply for NEA funding.
Please let me know your thoughts as well re becoming or being (if you already are) a 501.
I want to invite NEA to make a presentation on applying for grant funding.
