Grant Status
Seattle Arts & Culture grant's deadline was different than what was understood at the last Board meeting. We had not missed the deadline. Thus, we have had our grant accepted for next year. A new one time grant from Plymouth Congregational Church could be used to help with the Fall concert. It is called the Inspirational grant and is worth $1,500.

Rain City Symphony had more member donations than usual. A matching funds grant of $700 has been given to RCS for Spring quarter. Another way to get funds might be through IRA distributions. Members will be encouraged to think about donating this way.

Music Director's Report
Teresa feels the Fall Concert would be improved by reducing the amount of time for the plea to assist the homeless. A tactful way to accomplish this will need to be determined.
