Corporations, Foundations, & Government

Thank you to these major contributors who help to ensure that the performing arts have a home on Anoka’s Main Street for years to come.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

This activity funded in part thanks to the generous support of the Pentair Foundation.
