Art League Receives Grant
The Naperville Art League received a grant from the DuPage Foundation’s COVID-19 Response Fund Grant.
The art league is one of 24 DuPage County not-for-profit organizations to receive some relief through the foundation’s grant program.
“The grant enabled Naperville Art League to continue functioning at a reduced or virtual level during the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Naperville Art League president Sally Sharp in a press release. “We sincerely appreciate the DuPage Foundation’s support of art in the community.”
The art league received $14,825 out of $300,000 the foundation has given out to help arts organizations that are struggling during the pandemic.
