The Scottsdale League for the Arts, the organization that puts on the Scottsdale Culinary Festival each year, announces $150,000 in donations and grants to support local arts and arts educations programs in 2015-16.

The SLA online grant application process allows local non-profits to easily submit an application for funding. This program has provided more than $4 million in funding since 2002.

The online grant application is available at, and the grant application package must be completed by Friday, Aug. 7, according to a press release.

Grants will be funded in mid-September, which is a crucial time as arts programs gear up for new seasons, stated the release. Grants will be awarded to nonprofit 501(c)(3) agencies that expand the League’s support of the visual, culinary, and performing arts, as well as arts education, according to the release.
