SAN LUIS OBISPO LITTLE THEATRE RECEIVES GRANT FROM THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION SLO COUNTY

Generous $10,000 grant funds the creation of a new full service costume shop with extensive inventory



(SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA) The San Luis Obispo Little Theatre has received a $10,000 grant from The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County (CFSLOCO.) These grant funds will be used to organize, inventory and catalogue the Little Theatre’s recently acquired collection of almost 10,000 costumes and accessories (purchased from the now closed Costume Capers) ultimately creating a full service costume shop, that will serve not only the Little Theatre’s own theatrical production needs, but will make this extensive inventory available and accessible to other performing arts groups, local schools and the general public.


The San Luis Obispo Little Theatre was chosen to receive this grant and is among 30 recipients, whose grants total $228,800. This year’s CFSLOCO grantmaking program is made possible through the generous support of the Foundation’s Community Endowment and many donor funds held at the Foundation. In only 16 years, the CFSLOCO has given out more than $28 million in grants to assist nonprofit agencies.
