Saugus Cultural Council

The Saugus Cultural Council seeks to enhance the quality of life for Saugus residents by promoting and funding community cultural events through funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council. The Saugus Cultural Council awards a number of annual grants to individuals and organizations. These grants in the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences serve to add vibrancy to the town and introduce a cross-section of cultural events that enrich community life and connect citizens of different ages and generations.
