Apply for Gould Grant

Arts awards named for former mayor

Clara Lou Gould

Applications are being accepted through Friday, Sept. 6, for grants from the Clara Lou Gould Fund for the Arts, named for the former longtime Beacon mayor.

The fund said it provides grants for projects not generally supported by other local arts organizations, including artist’s projects; exhibition, performance or public art projects; arts education programs; and community projects that promote local artists and activities.

The 2018 grantees were the Howland Chamber Music Circle and artist Donna Mikkelsen. Each project received $500. Applicants must be a nonprofit or fiscally sponsored by one. See or email
