I've appreciated hearing everyone's responses. Therefore, I'll reply on the listerv as well.

Guy,

The Texas Center for the Book is part of the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, a state governmental agency. However, many grants benefiting the Texas Center for the Book are made through the Friends of Libraries & Archives of Texas, a 501(c)(3). Therefore, I'd be interested to hear more about the NEA grants. Even though we wouldn't be able to apply for them directly.

Grateful,

Rebekah

Subject: are you 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(c)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
