"We are not alone and our work transcends borders. Our collective power is grounded in our membership and the communities our members come from and work with. We can hear each other across oceans and the landscapes we call home, and we work in solidarity with each other and other liberation movements." GRCA Points of Unity
Girls Rock Detroit has been awarded a grant of $1500 from the State of Michigan Arts and Culture Council (MACC). The grant was awarded through the MACC peer review process and was one of 594 applications to compete for MACC fiscal year 2022 funding.
Organizations receiving a MACC grant award are required to match those funds with other public and private dollars. Support of the project included gifts from individual donations and Maggie Cocco Music LLC. Girls Rock Detroit also receives significant volunteer support from the community.
For the first time since its inception, Girls Rock Detroit has a board that does not include any of its founding members. Your support will allow us to foster independence and cohesive organization for subsequent boards that will support our programming by securing council/mentorship to these ends.
The MACC peer review process allows for each grant application to be competitively considered by a panel of in-state and out-of-state arts and culture professionals. This ensures the taxpayers, who support this project through legislative appropriations, and all other visitors or residents in Michigan will have access to the highest quality arts and cultural experiences.
A complete list of grant awards around the state is available by contacting MACC at (517) 241-4011, or by visiting the MACC website
