Dear Dickinson Community Non-Profit Organization: The City of Dickinson is excited to announce that $16,900 has been awarded to 4 community service organizations through the Red, White & Bayou Crawfish & Texas Music Festival grant program. The 2016 Red, White & Bayou Festival grant recipients are: Dickinson ISD Education Foundation, M. I. Lewis Social Service Center, Family Service Center of Galveston County and Dickinson Historical Society.

“We are thrilled to be able to provide grants to these organizations that do extremely valuable work for the Dickinson community,” said Julie Robinson, City Administrator. “We hope to continue to grow this event so we can have an even greater impact on the community and help even more organizations continue to make Dickinson a great place to live and work.”

Recipients of the Red, White and Bayou grants are selected through a competitive application process during which each applicant must describe the goals of their proposed project or program and how that project or program will positively impact the Dickinson community and its citizens. Since the Festival began in 2009, $134,900 in community grants have been distributed to various non-profit organizations.

As you know, Red, White & Bayou is a Festival with a heart. When you come out to the Festival, you help us raise money that goes to local non-profit organizations each year. Last year, you helped us raise $35,000.00 that was awarded through grants to seven different local non-profit organizations. So, if you’re unable to join us this year and you would like to help us raise funds for our local non-profit organizations, you can now donate to Red, White & Bayou specifically for the grant funds that will be available to local non-profit organizations. We hope to see you at the Festival, but if we don’t, we hope you’ll continue to help us raise grant funds for our local non-profit agencies!
