DAAC doesn’t receive funding from the city or county or township. We are fortunate to receive
two grants each year from the Illinois Arts Council Agency for general programs and regranting that amount to approximately 5% of our annual budget. Also, a number of our programs charge a modest fee to help keep them delivering great arts experiences to our community. Otherwise, individual members, business sponsors, foundations, corporations, and our two annual fundraisers fuel our programs and activities.
A few recent examples of this local generosity are:
- A donation from Susan Wade to make our free arts classes for seniors possible.
- A gift from the Young Philanthropists Giving Circle to fund Experience: ART Field Trip scholarships.
- A grant from Homefield Energy to allow us to offer bus scholarships to transport kids to PASS performances.
