About NAEF Grants

Whether it be a large grant for construction of a theater, or smaller grants for education and art related projects in the area, NAEF is striving to provide unique opportunities for cultural growth and awareness.

Past grants have included $500,000 toward original construction cost of the Benvenuti Performing Arts Center to over 80 smaller grants ranging from $100 – $30,000 benefiting local schools, educators, and students. Click here to see a comprehensive list of past grants awarded.
