City Funded Cultural Activities

2020-2021 Cultural Funding Cycle

In Fall, 2019, the City of Bainbridge Island received 21 proposals from 19 organizations for cultural projects and activities that benefit Bainbridge Island residents and visitors during 2020-2021. These proposals were considered by a committee of volunteers, through a professionally facilitated review process. The committee issued its funding recommendation in November, 2019. The recommendation was reviewed by City Council and approved on December 10, 2019.

A total of $300,000 will be distributed through a two-year funding cycle. Special consideration was given to organizations and projects that proposed to use City funds to advance the community objectives identified within the Cultural Element and/or Economic Element of the City’s Comprehensive Plan.
