ACE Funding

The Arts Council of Edgerton (ACE) is a nonprofit, charitable organization devoted to promoting the arts in Edgerton, Wisconsin. Any ACE-funded project must culminate in tangible services presented to the community, such as exhibitions, concerts, touring productions, festivals, and publications. Public access to the project is a requirement of any ACE-supported activity. ACE funds are intended to help organizations leverage additional financial support from other sources and develop a diverse funding base. As such, ACE cannot be the primary funder for any organization and its activities.

We prioritize projects that include architecture, dance, folk arts, literary arts, music, theater, and visual arts, or projects that introduce the arts to new audiences, encourage new works, as well as innovation.
