The Bloomberg Philanthropies recently shared the love and money with still another Dallas nonprofit. In addition to Dallas Contemporary, the Dallas Holocaust Museum Center for Education and Tolerance was also a recipient of a Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Arts and Innovation Management (AIM) grant for $200,000 over two years.
According to the Museum’s CEO Mary Pat Higgins, “We are grateful to have been invited to participate in this exciting program and selected as a recipient of the AIM grant. It will help us continue to expand our reach, engage new audiences and better teach our community the moral and ethical responses to prejudice.”
The two-year program will provide $100,000 the first year and will require the grantee organization to participate in the AIM Training Program and “to secure matching funds equivalent to 20% of the annual grant sum, reach 100% board member participation in fund raising and sustain up-to-date records in the Cultural Data Project (CDP).” If the requirements are fulfilled, an additional $100,000 will be provided in the second year.
The AIM grant program is by invitation only and involves only six cities — Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Plans call for the museum to participate in the AIM Training Program’s first seminar, “The Cycle and Artistic Planning,” on Wednesday, June 24.
