Wendell Cultural Council

The Wendell Cultural Council is made up of at least 5 Community Members who believe strongly in the essential role, and the importance and power of the arts, the humanities, and the interpretive sciences. We support applications that reflect a wide variety of disciplines and that reach a diverse demographic in our community (age, gender, race, ethnicity, interests, etc.) We work with local resources such as schools, library, town, local and sometimes regional community groups, to provide appropriate venues, support, and co-sponsorship.

FY22 Local Priorities

The Wendell Cultural Council gathers community input and develops funding priorities based on this feedback.
We give priority to:

? Programs that take place within the town of Wendell, or that have Wendell resident participation
? A wide variety of disciplines
? Programs that contribute to our goals of funding programs that benefit diverse age, gender, race, and ethnicity populations
? Organizations and programs that enrich the cultural experiences and life-long learning on an ongoing basis. Therefore, there is no limit placed on applications over consecutive years.
? At present, programs that practice Covid-19 safety protocols such as social distancing and/or using remote or virtual platforms.
Applicants that demonstrate prior planning, especially in regard to contacting local venues and gaining their support prior to submitting the application.
Funding levels: There is no formally set limit. Most grants approved fall within a range of $50 to $800.
