Grants: Grants from foundations,public institutions,and other
non-profit organizations provide funding for programming
at the event and for other projects
  Grants are competitive. Projected budgets, specific program goals and objectives, and detailed descriptions and measures of how those goals are to be reached.

Different grants target different program areas, with some allowing "general support" funds for the production expenses such as staging or sound.

Arts grants will usually fund performer's fees or stipends. Other types grants may restricted to programs for at-risk youth, educational programs for schoolchildren (especially in low-income areas), programs showcasing cultural diversity or other restrictions.

Most funding agencies won't cover administrative costs like office expenses or storage rental for equipment and/or supplies. (or staff salaries, but we as an all-volunteer organization don't have paid positions.)

The Festival is always seeking grants to support the annual event and/or other projects which support our reason for existence: To promote cultural awareness and education about South Pacific Islander arts and other cultural practices.
