2015 Ball Grant Recipients

This year, thanks to the generosity of our corporate/individual sponsors and attendees and the success of the 2015 Executive’s Ball, the Executive’s Ball Committee distributed over $160,000 to 82 organizations in Montgomery County.

These 80+ arts and humanities organizations in Montgomery provide arts and humanities educational opportunities for students of all ages.

Organizations were categorized by budget size: Tier 1 (Large), Tier 2 (Mid-size) and Tier 3 (Small). The Ball followed funding categories as established by the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County (AHCMC). Organization size was based on FY 2015 grant awards to correlate to the year the Ball is held. Grants were given based an organization’s Tier plus raffle tickets sales ($25 for each ticket sold on its behalf was granted back to the organization).
