Art and Music Sponsorship

The Sierra County Arts Council is pleased to offer the Art and Music Sponsorship (AMS) program. The Arts Council is always seeking opportunities to bring more events and programs to our geographically isolated communities.  Through the AMS program, the Arts Council collaborates with local organizations to bring art and music to all parts of Sierra County.

Local organizations including civic groups, non-governmental organizations, and non-profits are eligible to apply for funding to hire artists and musicians to enhance events and programing through the AMS program.  Examples of Sierra County based groups that may apply for sponsorship includes volunteer fire departments, Sierra Schools Foundation, Rotary, Lions, sports' boosters, PTOs, Plumas-Sierra Cattlewomen, Mountain Star Quilters, and 4H.  Funding of up to $500 per year per organization is available through the AMS program.

All events and programming must take place in Sierra County.  All funds will be paid directly to the musician or artist providing the service.  Events and programs funded through the AMS program will be featured on the Sierra County Arts Councils website.
