Renegade Comedy Theatre was recently given a $1,000 grant for its Supporting Young Local Artists program, an award that will allow the local theater group to pay a stipend to directors, actors, and designers in 2010. The grant comes from the Duluth Superior Community Foundation’s Young Leaders Funds, and Renegade is the first to receive it.
The Young Leaders Fund was developed to provide financial incentives to young adults who are working on projects and activities that appeal to other young adults in the area.
The 12-member committee looks at organizations that promote leadership skill development, civic engagements, entrepreneurship, technology, public relations, college and university community connections and awareness of career and economic opportunities. Grants range from $500-$2,000, and the deadline to apply for the next grant is Feb. 1, 2010.
