Funding Opportunities

The Z recognizes that budgets are under great strain, therefore listed below are resources that may be useful when looking for assistance in funding tickets, transportation, and costs for our Educational Programs. For more information call 508-997-5664 x129.

LOCAL CULTURAL COUNCIL Field Trip Grant:
www.mass-culture.org/New-Bedford

The postmark deadline is October 15. Grants from LCCs are reimbursement based.

The applicant must purchase tickets in advance, and if approved for a grant, then submit paperwork to the LCC for reimbursement. The LCC Field Trip Grant funds field trips to attend a performance at The Z for children, grades Pre-Kindergarten through 12, by subsidizing the cost of admission. Applicants may be parents, teachers, administrators, PTA/PTOs, neighborhood centers or civic organizations. Public, private, and parochial schools are all eligible for LCC Field Trip Grants. Not all towns fund the Field Trip Grant. Check with your local cultural council.
