It’s been one stressful year. We at OVI recognize that you may have had more things on your mind than filling out applications for an OVI matching grant, or nominating a loyal volunteer for a Partners in Excellence award. Mindful of that, we’ve extended the application deadlines to May 31.
But now is the time to firm up plans for that project you and your support group will begin in the fall – or maybe before. OVI awards matching grants to member support groups for projects supporting the creative use of volunteers in opera. The application material and samples of past grant recipients are found here.
And we know that many support groups have devised creative programming and other projects this year. Let the volunteer community know about it with a Project of Special Merit award.
A Partners in Excellence award is a way to recognize those special volunteers who’ve given time, talent and creativity to help make and keep opera a vital part of your community. Find the nomination forms on this website.
There’s plenty of time to get those application in. Don’t we all need a boost after this year!
