Tippecanoe Arts Federation to award $187,000 in capital projects grants

LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Tippecanoe Arts Federation (TAF) announces the awarding of nearly $187,000 in capital projects grants to six arts and cultural organizations in Tippecanoe and Montgomery counties. The grants were made possible through the generous gift from North Central Health Services, Inc. (NCHS), a medical services organization committed to addressing a wide range of health issues and to enhancing the quality of life for individuals, families and communities.

A grants award ceremony will be held at 2:30 PM on September 18, 2008, at the Wells Community Cultural Center, 638 North Street, Lafayette, and is free and open to the public.

This year’s recipients include the Lafayette Flute Choir, the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette, the Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette, Indiana Fiddlers’ Gathering, the Long Center for Performing Arts, and the Montgomery County Cultural Foundation.

TAF Executive Director Tetia Lee commented, “TAF is proud to be able to once again distribute these grants on behalf of NCHS. It’s significant to note that this year’s funding represents the millionth dollar made available to local arts by NCHS. The capital projects funded this year will enable these organizations to increase their capacity and to deliver enhanced programming and services to our local communities.”
