We are pleased to share that ISA was awarded two grants recently. The Arts Council of Indianapolis and the City of Indianapolis awarded ISA $2,000 for our annual concert series, and the Associated Chamber Music Players awarded ISA $1,200 for our Chamber Music Program.
It is an exciting step for ISA in diversifying our income but there is more to do. Contact board member, Erik Rohde at Board@IndySuzukiAcademy.org, if you would like to help in future efforts at grant writing.
