Grants & Fundraising

SH2A Grants

Since 2013, we have been awarded the following grants that support our effort to keep arts and music in the Santiam Canyon.  We would not be able to do all that we do without these grants.  We will continue applying for grants to maintain SH2A’s programs and fulfill our mission in the Santiam Canyon.


Fundraising is extremely important to SH2A. We support the Santiam Canyon

Community Chorus by paying for the music director and purchasing music. We support our local schools by helping fund the Missoula Children’s Theater twice yearly and providing funds for needed music supplies. We have financially supported a music teacher for after-school programs. We will work diligently to continue funding these projects and as many more as possible. Music and art are such important educational components in our schools. 


SH2A will reach out to anyone of any age who wants to participate in the arts.
