"The Arts Council has made our organization stronger by affording us two valuable benefits: Opportunities and Connections. Opportunities for funding to carry out our mission and Connections with artists, arts organizations, and potential arts funders. We rely on the Arts Council in the often-challenging world of non-profit arts organizations."
