Community Arts Center receives grant from the Waldron Memorial Fund at FCFP

The Penn College Community Arts Center (CAC) is pleased to announce it has been awarded a $2,500 grant from the Waldron Memorial Fund at the First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania (FCFP). These funds will go toward the 2022-2023 Educational Series program at the CAC, specifically to assist the Muncy School District with busing students to attend the CAC’s matinee shows.

“We are incredibly appreciative of the generous support from the Waldron Memorial Fund. This gift, and others like it, help to ensure the future of the Educational Series at the Community Arts Center, and guarantee the continuation of awe-inspiring performances and learning experiences for young minds throughout our area,” said Jim Dougherty, Executive Director of the Community Arts Center.

The Educational Series has been offered free to students since 2007, and serves nine school districts in two counties, Lycoming and Sullivan. All costs related to the program, artists fees, technical labor, and busing are absorbed by the CAC.

“We are very grateful for this funding from the Waldron Memorial Fund,” said Ana Gonzalez-White, Director of CAC Development.

“It’s always exciting to be able to collaborate with the school districts to offer the students this curriculum-based arts programming.”

Funding for the educational programming is derived from various sources, including grants, individual donations, corporate sponsorships, and EITC Funds.
