Grants & Funding

We work hard to seek appropriate grants and funding opportunities to supplement our diverse programming, restoration and maintenance and operational cost needs.

This year has been particularly challenging and yet we have been blessed with funding from these amazing institutions as well as our individual donors and members. Please consider joining our organization as a member or making a donation to support our programming, operations and restoration efforts.

STOREY COUNTY FUNDING:

We are thankful for Storey County funding and in-kind support by the IT department and Public Works departments. Through this support we are able to address some of the critical restoration and maintenance work required to keep this amazing county property standing and available to visitors and our community that would otherwise not be covered through grants, donations and programming revenues.

NEVADA ARTS COUNCIL & NATIONAL ENDOWMENT OF THE ARTS:

St. Mary’s Art Center programming is supported, in part, by the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and the state of Nevada. We have been fortunate to receive PIE and CARES Act Grants through these critical grants.

NEVADA HUMANITIES & NATIONAL ENDOWMENT OF THE ARTS:

Funding to support our organization has been provided by Nevada Humanities through Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the CARES Act economic stabilization plan of 2020.

COMMISSION FOR CULTURAL AFFAIRS – STATE HISTORIC PRESERVATION OFFICE:

We have been awarded a fantastic $100,000.00 grant to help restore our leaking porch, damaged print room, deteriorating east facade windows and repointing of our brick chimney. This work will begin upon final paperwork completion and funds availability. We look forward to completing this critical work to restore the property to full functionality.
