Newton Community Pride accepting applications for spring grant program

Newton Community Pride is looking to give away some money to benefit cultural enrichment throughout the city.

The local nonprofit is accepting applications for its spring 2024 community grants.

NCP offers two cycles of grants each year—typically giving out $500 to $1,000 grants—to recipients supporting arts, culture and service in Newton. The group has set $10,000 toward grants being awarded in 2024.

NCP has given out more than $40,000 in grants since launching itrs micro-grant program a few years ago. Recent recipients include Green Newton’s Bottle Cap Mural project, concerts produced and performed by Cappella Clasura, the Jameson Singers and the Charles River Wind Ensemble as well as a Newton Eagle Scout’s Cold Spring Park conservation project.

“Newton Community Pride believes strongly in providing seed money to support local events and projects that enhance our community,” NCP Executive Director Blair Lesser Sullivan said. “A small amount of financial support goes a long way and we look forward each cycle to investing in more Newton arts and culture programming, public art, service and beautification projects.

Applications are due Feb. 1, 2024. For more information, visit
