$87,500 – January 1-June 30, 2021, grant period

(Des Moines, IA) Hoyt Sherman Place was awarded an $87,500 Cultural Leadership Grant from Bravo Greater Des Moines. Bravo awarded nearly $2.5 million to 65 organizations to support arts, culture and heritage operations and programs in Greater Des Moines between January 1-June 30, 2021. This investment is nearly $450,000 more than Bravo has ever invested in a 6-month period and reflects Bravo’s commitment to critical support for the cultural sector, which is still deeply challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Hoyt Sherman Place has been and will continue to be an Arts, Culture and Historical Icon for Central Iowa, its residents and communities, as was evident by the way the organization shifted focus on a dime and survived a global pandemic,” says Executive Director Robert Warren. “We are especially grateful for the support from Bravo this year.  It makes the light at the end of the tunnel shine that much brighter.”

Since January 2020, on behalf of 17 local government partners, Bravo Greater Des Moines has invested more than $6.3 million in the nonprofit cultural organizations that strengthen the region and are essential to the region’s quality of life and economic vibrancy.
