Since 1996, American Savings Foundation has awarded over $1 million to support seasonal performances at local music and theater companies.
For over 25 years, American Savings Foundation has supported local musical and theatrical works enriching the lives of individuals in the community. During that time the foundation has provided awards to youth concerts, symphonies, and performing ensembles.
In 2018, ASF launched a new Community Grant opportunity to respond to local community needs, and support programs in the areas of education, human services, and arts and culture. The Community Grant program helped expand our support for local performing groups throughout the foundations 64-town service area.
