The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation has awarded the Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival a Knight Arts Challenge Matching Grant of $75,000.
Knight Foundation invests in artistic excellence, funding arts projects that engage the Knight resident communities in collective cultural experiences. They look for innovative, high-quality ideas. Grantees represent both emerging artists and organizations and the oldest and most venerable institutions. The projects all have one thing in common: they enrich and engage the communities that produce them.
We need your help to raise funds to match this grant, as is required to receive this generous award! This grant, ticket sales and community donations will allow our non-profit festival to return in 2016 for the 5th annual Virginia Key GrassRoots Festival!
You can donate online or on-site at the festival in our fundraising tent!
Over the past four years we have helped strengthen the music community in Miami, supporting artists, providing a platform for collaboration and engaging South Florida in a community building celebration of the arts and sustainable living. Help us thrive!
