Community Foundation opens competitive grants process for Oliver G. & Sarah Sloan Bauman Fund for the Arts


Mon, Mar 18th 2019 01:20 pm

The Oliver G. & Sarah Sloan Bauman Fund for the Arts is accepting grant applications for its 2019 granting cycle. The Oliver G. & Sarah Sloan Bauman Fund for the Arts is administered by the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo and awards annual grants to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations located within the eight counties of Western New York that specialize in the classical arts sector. Applications are due Friday, April 12, and are available at www.cfgb.org/nonprofits/grants.

The Oliver G. & Sarah Sloan Bauman Fund for the Arts was established in 1996 by Sarah Bauman Baxter as a unique way to memorialize her father, Oliver Bauman. Baxter and her father shared a love of the classics, including classical languages, ballet and opera. At the end of her life, she translated that love into a legacy gift, which Baxter hoped would help “perpetuate the appreciation of such fine arts as an important and integral part of our culture.” 

In accordance to Baxter’s wishes, priority will be given to applications that focus solely on the performance of “traditional, classical ballet and opera on the living stage, and preferably of the English, European or Russian schools.”
