The same is true of Arkansas.  We are a state agency, part of the Arkansas Department of Education, and not a 501(c)3.

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.

 

Thanks,

Guy
