This annual cash grant is intended to assist emerging and established North and West Vancouver artist(s) of all ages who are interested in developing their practice.
Funds for this grant are generated through the investment income earned from the FANS Endowment. Average grants in years past have totaled $5000- $6,000. The FANS Society is pleased to announce a special donation received from the former Friends of the Ferry Building Society. This new funding will allow FANS to provide an addition grant of $2,500 per year, for the next four years. FANS anticipates a similar Budget for 2019.
