Learn about the St. Petersburg Arts Endowment
In December 2015, the St. Petersburg Arts Alliance (SPAA) established an arts endowment fund at the Community Foundation Tampa Bay. The purpose of the fund is to ensure that the arts community has a resource available for sustainability. SPAA‘s role is to raise these funds and work with the city to award grants, through its Arts Advisory Committee to our arts community. This advisory committee will be gathered through a grants process, as laid out in Chapter 5 of City Ordinances.
As an organization that advocates for all the arts within St. Pete, we want to ensure that our efforts go towards building the resources for the future. This fund will assist with many different needs for the arts community. This is how the visual and performing arts community will grow. Encouraging public support for this endowment is a key element, so that arts within St. Petersburg has wide community involvement. Kahwa Coffee understands the importance of the arts within St. Petersburg and has stepped up to make this collaboration possible. Without their vision and interest in supporting the arts, this project would not be possible.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with SPAA and look forward to the future collaborations with artists in community. We are fervent supporters of the arts in St. Petersburg.” - Sarah Perrier, co-founder of Kahwa Coffee.
