On February 22, 2012, the Van Cliburn Foundation was one of 42 arts organizations in Fort Worth and Tarrant County to be awarded a grant from the Arts Council of Fort Worth and Tarrant County during its Annual Meeting and Grant Awards Reception at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. The Cliburn received both general operating support and Neighborhood Arts Program (NAP) Project support for the 2012 grant cycle. The general operating support grant provides the Cliburn support for its day-to-day activities to produce and present the high-quality programs. The NAP grant is utilized specifically to assist the Cliburn in taking Musical Awakenings® into Title 1 schools in Fort Worth. The Van Cliburn Foundation is honored and grateful to receive funding from the Arts Council of Fort Worth and Tarrant County.
