The Community Endowment for the Arts will increase opportunities for activity, enrichment and support within our community through the arts. It will benefit nonprofit organizations who have as their primary focus visual, creative or performance art. The Greater New Braunfels Arts Council will serve as the umbrella organization to united fundraising efforts for this fund.

The long-term goal for establishing this fund is to create a resource that provides a recurring funding source for the arts.

Inaugural Community Endowment for the Arts Fund Grants

The New Braunfels Area Community Foundation is excited about the inaugural Community Endowment for the Arts Fund grants. Four $1,000 grants will be awarded to nonprofit organizations grounded in the visual, creative or performing arts in New Braunfels and Comal County.

The Community Endowment for the Arts Fund was established with NBACF in 2016. The long-term goal for establishing the Community Endowment for the Arts Fund was to create a resource that provides a recurring funding source for the arts. This will lead to a sustainable, culturally rich environment and arts education in the community, leading to overall healthy wellbeing in the community.

Through matching funding from the McKenna Foundation, and the Fall into Art Month activities in October, the fund has continued to grow, allowing for the first grants to be awarded to nonprofit arts organizations in 2017.

We like to say that we are stronger when we work together than we are when we work individually. This Community Endowment for the Arts is a great example of that,” said Brit W. King, President/CEO of NBACF. “The New Braunfels Area Community Foundation, the McKenna Foundation, and the Greater New Braunfels Arts Council all worked together to create this valuable asset that will make grants to the arts community in Comal County forever.”

The Community Endowment for the Arts Fund grants will be awarded during the Fall into Art Fashion Show on Oct. 26 at McKenna Events Center.               .
