ACS Grant Advance Workshop
A Solid Success!

On Friday evening, January 23rd ACS Member Groups gathered at the Newton Cultural Centre to participate in a workshop conducted by Samuel Lane, Manager Support Services for Grant Advance Solutions [GAS]. Nineteen representatives took advantage of the partnership between GAS and ACS by registering for a very limited number of mini-licenses permitting access to primarily ‘family run’ foundations with a history of supporting art projects.

Some $85 Billion (yes-billion) is available in Canada alone through Foundations. Approximately 10% or $850 Million is given annually to applicants requesting funding. Each Foundation is required by the CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) to divest the minimum of 3.5% of their assets annually. These figures prove there is indeed money to be had in Canada, particularly in BC and Ontario, for the arts.

For more information on this ACS funding program contact info@artscouncilofsurrey.ca. For a 3 minute video on the GAS program, a testimonial video from Sudnya Mulya of Sudnya Dance and a brief introductory video from GAS’s Samuel Lane, please see below.

This is yet another way the ACS is helping members make a creative lifestyle – possible!.
