Berks County Arts Fund - Penn Street Arts Grant Program

The Berks County Arts Fund was created by Berks County Community Foundation to encourage local residents to support the arts in Berks County through their donations. In 2014 the Community Foundation’s board of directors allocated $50,000 a year for five years to support arts programming on Penn Street in the City of Reading in the area designated as part of the official Main Street program (Penn Street between Second Street and the railroad tracks).

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Grants from the fund will support programs by established arts organizations that will bring the arts to the Main Street area.
  • Programs may include performances, exhibits, interactive activities or other creative ideas that bring art “out of the establishment” and to the residents of our community.
