Arts Midwest Performing Arts Fund

Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. The Touring Fund supports the inter-state touring of professional performing artists in the fine arts of dance, theatre, music, youth and family entertainment throughout Arts Midwest's nine-state region. They grant 20% of a program's cost, from a minimum of $500 granted (i.e., total program cost $2500) to a maximum of $5,000 granted (i.e., total program cost $25,000). Their application is very simple and can all be done on-line. You will need a document proving that your school or organization is a non-profit, tax-exempt entity (your district business office should have that). A Circus Day is a great fit for this grant, it meets the educational component and the community component. Visit http://www.artsmidwest.org/programs/paf details on the grant and who to contact at Arts Midwest if you have questions.
