The LaFontaine Arts Council thanks of our generous and dedicated board members for the time and energy spent to make this organization what it is today. We would not be as successful without that kind of hard work and support from community patrons of the arts. Much appreciation goes to all of the local individuals, businesses, and organizations who support our fundraisers and events through sponsorship, donation, or volunteerism.
Arts United, Indiana Arts Commission, and the National Endowment for the Arts has offered continued support and resources to the LAC throughout the years. The Arts in Education program series is made possible in part by grant funding from these organizations. The Council is grateful to have an established relationship with these esteemed arts organizations.
