The Springville Arts Commission (SAC) is an advisory committee to the Springville City Council. Some of the primary responsibilities of the commission include assisting the City in providing funding to local arts and humanities organizations and to increase awareness of and participation in the fine and performing arts by citizens of Springville. All grant applications are reviewed by the SAC and funding recommendations are then forwarded to the Springville City Council for approval. All grants are made on an “available funds” basis and new applications must be submitted for each block of funds as they become available. Springville Arts Commission’s support should be considered supplementary to the budgets of any arts/humanities organization. The SAC encourages organizations to seek funding sources in addition to the SAC showing a strong financial commitment by the applicant and others for their project. In fundraising, non-profit groups should be aware of federal tax rules.
