What We've Achieved
During the first six years of the Marcy Arts Partnership programs were sponsored in part by the Minnesota Arts & Education Partnership and the Annenberg Arts for Academic Achievement, with matching grants from local businesses. Since then, the largest portion of the budget has been raised in the annual Marcy Arts Gala fundraising event. Additional funding has been possible through grants from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council and Target Corporation. The annual program budget ranges from $40,000 to $50,000. The Marcy Arts Partnership strives to leverage funding, creating a vibrant mix of funding and program activities that have a widespread impact at the school and in the community. The funds are used for artist residencies, for professional development, for curriculum development and for equipment and technical resource development intended to integrate the arts into the entire school.
