Coupeville Arts Festival grants now available

The Coupeville Festival Association is looking for applicants for the organization’s yearly grants.

All proceeds from the Coupeville Arts and Crafts Festival, which takes place in early August, go back into the community within the 98239 zip code.

Those proceeds are divvied up in the form of grants and scholarships. The association has awarded more than $500,000 since 1964.

Check the festival association website at coupevillefestival.com and click “grants” to see if a request qualifies.

Last year, the Coupeville Festival Association awarded grants to the Giant Pumpkin Contest, Coupeville Schools Juvenile Detention Center, the Central Whidbey Chamber of Commerce, Sno-Isle Libraries, Island County Museum, Penn Cove Water Festival, Pacific Northwest Art School, Coupeville Historic Waterfront Association, WSU Island County Extension, the Coupeville Boys and Girls Club and Coupeville History Day, according to the Coupeville Festival Association website.

Fill out an application and mail it to P.O. Box 611, Coupeville, WA, 98239. The deadline is Oct. 21.
