October 04, 2018

We are pleased to announce that Community Art Center was selected to participate in the Barr-Klarman Massachusetts Arts Initiative – as announced yesterday on the Barr Foundation’s blog. A partnership between two Boston-based foundations - Barr and The Klarman Family Foundation – the initiative is a $25 million, six-year investment in 29 arts and cultural organizations from across Massachusetts. Participating organizations receive flexible, multi-year operating support grants, in addition to training and technical assistance from TDC, a nonprofit consulting and research firm. Community Art Center’s engagement in the initiative begins with two grants totaling $300,000 from Barr and the Klarman Family Foundation over the next three years. This is a ringing endorsement of the Community Art Center’s work and a substantial investment in our potential.
