endowment

The Endowment Committee manages and administers the trust fund of the Milford Arts Council to ensure its future; promotes and nurtures the arts in Milford and surrounding communities; offers scholarships; and accepts and encourages donations to a trust fund established in 1998.

The Endowment Committee has awarded mini-grants to high school students’ art projects; supported writing projects and publications in Milford high schools; awarded grants to young musicians and dancers, enabling later achievements; provided supplies for student-created murals at Jonathan Law High School; and brought writing experts from out of state to lead day-long creative writing workshop for Milford high school students.

The Endowment Committee will continue to offer prizes and awards for outstanding artistic achievement; support city-wide arts awareness programs, such as the Submarine Project; sponsor recitals and concerts through the Council; and provide scholarships and internships for gifted student artists.The Endowment Committee will continue to offer prizes and awards for outstanding artistic achievement; support city-wide arts awareness programs, such as the Submarine Project; sponsor recitals and concerts through the Council; and provide scholarships and internships for gifted student artists.
