We Welcome Your Input!

The Harvard Cultural Council is a volunteer committee that awards grants to creatives of all ages and backgrounds, schools, and organizations in Harvard and neighboring communities. Activities considered for annual grant funding include community gatherings such as concerts, plays, and festivals; arts, science, and environmental education in the schools and at the public library; and projects focusing on local history and diversity, restoration, and preservation. 

As we set our funding goals for the next three years, we would love to have your input. We appreciate your time and thoughtfulness in completing this survey.
