The Sacramento Master Singers are grateful to Sacramento’s Office of Arts and Culture and the Sacramento Community Region Foundation whose ongoing support is funded in part by the Cultural Arts Award Program of the Office of Arts and Culture with support from the City and County of Sacramento.
Established by Congress in 1965, the NEA is the independent federal agency whose funding and support gives Americans the opportunity to participate in the arts, exercise their imaginations, and develop their creative capacities. Through partnerships with state arts agencies, local leaders, other federal agencies, and the philanthropic sector, the NEA supports arts learning, affirms and celebrates America’s rich and diverse cultural heritage, and extends its work to promote equal access to the arts in every community across America.
The Office of Arts and Culture (OAC) was established in 1977 by a City and County Ordinance. OAC is a public agency devoted to supporting, promoting and advancing the arts in the region. Funded by the Sacramento City and County, OAC provides funding to local artists and arts groups; promotes the arts through marketing, outreach and education initiatives; provides resources to support and increase regional arts education activities; and serves as a community partner and resource.
The California Arts Council was established in 1976. As a state agency, the California Arts Council supports local arts infrastructure and programming statewide through grants, programs, and services. During it’s four-plus decades of existence, the Council has awarded thousands of grants— a total investment of more than $400 million.
