The PNC Foundation recently announced recently that over the next three years it will award $300,000 in PNC Arts Alive grants to Miami-Dade County nonprofit, visual and performing arts organizations, in keeping with its mission to support the arts and increase arts access and engagement.
Since launching its Florida PNC Arts Alive initiative in 2016, PNC has pledged more than $1 million to area organizations, supporting 58 programs. Pop up opera units, interactive musical performances at hospitals and street chalk art are among programs previously supported in the Sunshine State.
PNC is accepting grant proposals for $10,000 and above from qualified, non-profit arts organizations that support fresh and emerging arts programs, value-added public programming and creative use of technology. Application deadline is 5 p.m., Aug. 12.
Organizations must have an operating budget of $75,000 or above, be located in Miami-Dade County and have been operating for more than two years.
“With COVID-19 still having an impact on live performances and art exhibits, we felt it was more important than ever to extend our commitment to the local $1.5 billion arts industry in Miami with much needed grants,” said Cressman Bronson, PNC regional president for Southeast Florida. “Through PNC Arts Alive, we have the opportunity to reinvigorate the arts locally with a variety of inspired productions that will take our shared vision of a thriving, artistic community to the next level.”
The 2022 PNC Arts Alive grants will allow the recipients to increase access to visual and performing arts activities and bring them to life in a wide range of artistic disciplines and a variety of topics. Complete details on the program and how to apply can be found at www.pncartsalive.com.
“We know what art can do, including how it changes perspectives and even has the power to change lives. From classical music and fine art to dance and theater, we’re committed to keeping the arts alive in Miami,” Bronson added.
PNC Arts Alive is a multi-year initiative of PNC and the PNC Foundation dedicated to supporting visual and performing arts groups with the goal of increasing arts access and engagement in new and innovative ways. The PNC Foundation, which receives its principal funding from The PNC Financial Services Group, actively supports organizations that provide services for the benefit of communities in which it has a significant presence. The foundation focuses its philanthropic mission on early childhood education and community and economic development, which includes the arts and culture.
