Taunton Cultural Council

The Taunton Cultural Council comprises a group of local volunteers, who are appointed by the Mayor, and who help promote and facilitate activities and the arts in Taunton. The Council oversees the distribution of Massachusetts Cultural Council funds to support programs in the arts, humanities, and sciences. We have funded programs that served teachers and students, seniors, artists, community events, and annual events that cover a wide, cross-section of Taunton.

Locally-raised funding may be used to support cultural programs. The Taunton Cultural Council can also organize, promote, and support single and ongoing cultural events and activities; such special programs are currently being considered. Our goal is to constantly identify and reach out to any underserved community.

FY23 Local Priorities

The Taunton Cultural Council funds projects that directly benefit the Taunton residents and neighboring communities. Priority is given to proposals for programs that make it easy for Taunton residents to attend, use local artists and venues, and serve a variety of less visible Taunton communities such as high needs children, senior citizens, veterans, LGBTQ+ organizations, and organizations that center on BiPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) individuals and communities.

FY23 Local Guidelines

1. We award Reimbursement Grants – We reimburse grantees based on the funds they have expended; supporting documentation must be included.

2. Applications must be submitted online. No paper copies are accepted.

3. Correspondence for approved grants MUST always contain the Grant Number and Project Title as shown in the approval letter.

4. The electronic submission of Grant Reimbursement requests is preferred.

5. Written commitment of artist/performer/venue must be included in proposal.
