The St. Lucie County organizations hope to qualify as one of the Top 20 finalists for the Levitt AMP Fort Pierce Grant Award, according to the release. It’s a multi-year matching grant created by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundspantion, a social impact funder of music and public spaces, to serve cities with populations up to 250,000.
Nonprofits will receive a total matching grant of $90,000 over three years to produce their own outdoor concert series featuring a diverse lineup of professional musicians that reimagines an underused public space to create an inclusive destination for people of all ages and backgrounds, according to the release.
The public may vote for up to five proposals, but only once per proposal. The number of votes received for Fort Pierce will be one of the key factors when the foundation selects the grant recipients on Nov. 15.
If Fort Pierce gets the grant, the St. Lucie Cultural Alliance and the St. Lucie County Parks & Recreation Department are planning to include local musicians and add an arts marketplace to complement the festival.
