The Alliance for the Arts, a nonprofit visual and performing arts center in the heart of Fort Myers, has announced The Arts are Vital: Emergency Funding for Artists and Arts Organizations in Lee County.

The Arts are Vital Grant is an emergency relief program for Lee County's arts organizations and individual artists formed in partnership with the Meisenberg Family Trust to ensure the sustained impact of the arts during a time when we need them most. The program provides one-time grant awards to arts organizations and professional artists with urgent financial need who reside in Lee County, Florida. These funds are unrestricted and may be used by the organizations and artists to help with financial issues due to the impact of COVID-19 on their organizations, lives and livelihoods.

Subject to the availability of funds, arts organizations may receive up to $5,000 and individual artists will receive up to $500.

Applications open Monday, June 29, and close at midnight EST on July 12. Artists residing in Lee County and eligible nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply at ArtInLee.org/Grant. Grant recipients will be announced August 2020.

This grant is made possible by a generous gift from the Meisenberg Family Trust and was facilitated by Jeremy and Paul Meisenberg, in memory of their mom and former Alliance Board Member and cultural supporter Deborah Meisenberg.

"Deb Meisenberg's thoughtfulness, generosity of spirit and passion for the arts will live on at the Alliance and in all who will benefit from her gift. We are grateful to Deb's sons, Jeremy and Paul, for continuing the good works of their mom and for making sure the arts remain relevant during this time of uncertainty," says Alliance for the Arts executive director, Lydia Black.
