Boxford Cultural Council
The Boxford Cultural Council is a community organization supported through funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. The BCC is made up of community members who vet and vote on grant applications submitted to us on an annual basis. We believe that a strong presence of the arts, science and humanities is essential to building a vibrant community and a thriving educational system. Our primary objective is to develop and fund projects that weave these elements into the fabric of our community. The BCC actively encourages local artisans, musicians, teachers and school organizations to submit grants for consideration to the Cultural Council.

FY24 Local Priorities
Programs and projects that engage community members in cultural arts and sciences are encouraged.
Applications can also focus on the humanities, e.g., history, social studies, philosophy, criticism, and literature.
Grants that involve activities for youth, families, and/or adults of all ages are welcome.
Preference will be given, but not limited to, local grant applicants (“local” meaning those who live in Boxford and surrounding communities).
Now that Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted, our community has requested in-person cultural activities & engagements when possible.

The proposed grant must directly serve Boxford residents.
