They're Giving Away Free Money! Love, Jennifer

Tue, Sep 4, 2012 at 7:40 AM

(Note: I would appreciate it if, as you were reading this, you heard it as the voice on your nearest car dealership's local commercial. This voice is also known as "overly excited yelling"). 


Yes, ladies and gentlemen, you heard me right! Free money! Attic Community Playground is at it again. Starting September 1st, ACP is now taking grant applications to give away free money to deserving schools and civic organizations whose performing arts programs are in need.


Does your school band need help with new uniforms? Does your chorus need sponsors for your All State nominees? Does your community theater have an upcoming production of "Grease" that needs financial assistance in the set construction for the "Beauty School Drop Out" scene? Does your show choir need therapy to get over their "Glee envy"? Well, today's your lucky day!!


All you have to do is fill out a form providing a description of your organization and its current project or need. Get online at


Click on the "2012 Grant Application" page and make your submission for a grant of $1000 to be applied to your school or organization's current performing arts program or project! The window to submit applications is September 10 - October 26. ACP will review the applications and notify winners on or before November 30th.


Don't miss this awesome opportunity to benefit your local school's performing arts programs! No, it's not too good to be true. ACP is just that awesome! (And beside, it's a charity. That's what they do!!! Duh!).


Love, Jennifer

    My husband in aug,2011 was diagnosed with cancer and 12/28/12, passed away at the age of 34. He fought so hard and from the day he was diagnosed he always said"whatever it takes" that is the slogan we used to carry us through. I will continue to use that phrase in dealing with grief and raising our boys. This past December our friends, strangers, and family starting taking pictures with the words"whatever it takes" and posting them on fb for us to and to be encourage. I was in hopes you could take a moment to take a pic with words in honor of my husband and me and tag me in it. Also anyone else that would like to take pic is welcomed! you were by far his FAVORITE artist!

    Thank you

    What if you live in a tiny rural community in Canada, whos high school is only focused on sports and rodeo. Both are very important yes, but we have been using the same sets for productions since I started helping in 2002. We have to rent equipment and everything. The school is so against the arts program, that the theatre group reherses and performs the musical in a local church so that they can actually have the space to do so. I graduated from said high school in 2004 and have continued to help. They do an awesome job with what they do have, but it would be great to see them get more.

    Also, I totally read that like it was an advertisment. So funny.
