10 area cultural organizations get $2.1 million from Pew

    In an effort to keep the area’s high-performing cultural organizations at their best, Pew has announced $2.1 million in funding for 10 local arts, theater and nature organizations.

    The Arden Theatre Company, Art Reach, Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, John J. Tyler Arboretum, Main Line Art Center, Opera Company of Philadelphia, People’s Light and Theatre Company, Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, Philadelphia Young Playwrights and Wilma Theater will share the money as Pew’s Philadelphia Cultural Leadership Program 2012 recipients.

     

    The largest grant will go to the Opera Company of Philadelphia, which will receive $750,000. Pew’s been giving the PCLP grants since 1997, and has awarded more than 200 of them to date.

    Together, the 2012 recipients generate more than $10 million a year.
