Batavia Arts Council Fund

Established 2011

batavia_arts_logoThis fund was established to provide support for the mission of the Batavia Arts Council in Batavia, Illinois.

The Batavia Arts Council was formed in 2011 for the purpose of creating an awareness of and interest in the arts and promoting the artistic, cultural and entertainment community in the City of Batavia.

These goals are being furthered in the following ways:

  • Providing a comprehensive website for artistic, cultural and entertainment events in Batavia.  If you want to know what there is to do in Batavia, visit http://www.bataviaartscouncil.org and check out the calendar!
  • Hosting events to showcase Batavia artists and venues. These events are a great opportunity to see the talent in Batavia’s own backyard, as well as providing great networking opportunities.
  • Providing greater media exposure through press releases about Batavia artists and events, artist profiles, and assistance with any Batavia artist or venue that needs greater publicity.
  • Serving as a resource to make things happen for artists in the community.!

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

Board Member & Scholarship Committee Member

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.
