Robert P. Lamprey, chairman of the MutualOne Charitable Foundation, announced today that the Foundation has awarded $2,500 to the Framingham Cultural Council (FCC). The grant will augment funds received from the Massachusetts Cultural Council to support FCC grants to local programs in the arts, humanities, and interpretative sciences.
According to FCC Chair Joel Winett, state funding for local FCC grants has been impacted in recent years due to state-wide budget constraints. Additional funding support from the community helps FCC increase the number and amounts of grants FCC can award, he added.
“Framingham Cultural Council grants fund a range of cultural activities, including music, dance, theater, history, storytelling, visual arts, and student field trips,” said Lamprey. “We’re happy to help support these activities at the local level.”
