Decorative Arts Society provides grants to 15 nonprofits during the COVID-19 crisis
Decorative Arts Society (DARTS), based in Newport Beach, awarded their 2020/2021 Grant Recipients in April in an unprecedented form. Due to the current health, social and economic climate from the COVID-19 crisis, DARTS not only increased the number of grant recipients to 15 agencies, but instead of waiting for the fiscal transition, they distributed the monies immediately to those chosen. These recipients, comprised of a highly dedicated and passionate group of Orange County-based nonprofit organizations, are a direct reflection of the mission of the Decorative Arts Society. Grant monies totaling $275,000 will be provided to these organizations to fund projects and other needed resources to support their causes.
“We felt strongly that the climate in our county as a result of the COVID-19 virus will severely affect the welfare of many of our OC women, families and children,” said Adrienne Garrison, president of DARTS. “Within days of our grants committee review process, we saw a very quick shift in the need here in Orange County. Many in our community are in an employment, basic needs and shelter crisis. We were pleased that we were able to react quickly and efficiently, supporting more agencies including many directly hit by COVID-19.”
The awarded agencies were honored and appreciative not only for the grant award, but the timing.
