MCAC Local Funding Request Guidelines

The Marshall County Arts Cooperative’s mission is to strive to unite the county as an arts community by promoting, inspiring, and supporting the arts and artists through our schools, community members, and other arts organizations to enrich the lives of all.


MCAC provides funding for local arts organizations.  To secure funding from MCAC, organizations must submit a written request.  Typically, MCAC meets the second Wednesday of every month. For requests of $500 or more a representative of the organization is welcome to attend the MCAC meeting to explain the request or to give additional information.

•          Include a 100 word description of the project.

•          Include marketing and promotion services requested of the MCAC (if applicable).

•          Include contact person with phone number, address, and e-mail address.


The board of directors will evaluate all requests and assign points according to the following criteria:
