Essex Winter Series Awarded 2024 “Supporting Arts” Grant Funding from CT Office of the Arts/DECD
With the “giving” season in full swing, the state’s Department of Economic and Community Development announced the recipients of the 2024 Supporting Arts Grants given through the Connecticut Office of the Arts, which also receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Essex Winter Series is grateful to once again be one of the 232 recipients of grants totaling more than one million dollars. For the upcoming year, the $3,271 amount received by EWS will help to support our season programming, which each year touches the lives of so many who attend our world-class classical and jazz concerts.
This funding, which provides the grantee the flexibility to use the funds where most needed, is a boon for Essex Winter Series and other nonprofits. For EWS, our goal for 47 years has been to bring the finest music to our community … not just a small sector, but the greater community. Susan Guernsey, President of the Essex Winter Series Board of Trustees, states that “This funding will help our organization to continue its mission and work to expand our enrichment to a wider audience.”
