Foundation Receives Large Grant


RUSSELLVILLE, AR - The Center for the Arts Foundation has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the Russellville Advertising and Promotion Commission.  Christie Graham, Executive Director of Tourism, recently made the presentation to The Center for the Arts Foundation Board members. 

The Center for the Arts Foundation was formed as a unique partnership with Russellville School District in the operation and use of The Center for the Arts.  The mission of The Center Foundation is to provide opportunities to enjoy, have access to, and benefit from cultural experiences related to live performances through music, dance, art, theatre and other entertainment.  

As a not-for-profit organization, The Center Foundation relies heavily on support from donors, sponsors, members, and the generosity of individuals, corporations, and foundations to help fill the gap, as ticket sales will cover only a portion of the operating costs of events. Thanks to the generosity of Russellville A & P and others, The Center for the Arts Foundation is excited to continue providing great opportunities for art and entertainment in the Russellville area.
