At South Sound Together we’re grateful to have resources to share with those working to make our community an even better place to live and do business. One way we get to do that is by funding small grants. We fund grantmaking organizations and they choose the creative changemakers to support.
In 2018, we gave $10,000 to the Children’s Museum of Tacoma, which will pass that money along to people and programs making this community a better — and more playful — place for children. We gave $15,000 to the Grand Cinema for its Film 253 grants, which support filmmakers and fund a prize awarded at the Tacoma Film Festival. And we gave $10,000 to Elements of Education’s Youth Connect: Classrooms to Museum program, which does just what the name says — funds field trips and art projects for underserved classrooms.
