Ellison Center Cultural Facilities Fund Match

This spring, SSC was selected to receive a $133,000 grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund to support capital needs at the Ellison Center for the Arts.  This grant requires us to raise matching funds of the same amount to give our Duxbury cultural gem a facelift, making it more energy efficient, better equipped, and aesthetically pleasing. The award supports exterior repairs, acoustic improvements, and sound and projection systems to the facility.
