Each Community Grant request will be evaluated based on whether or not it meets the following objects of the Wright Family Performing Arts and Entertainment Centre Foundation:

-To support performing arts in the community;
-To educate and increase the public's understanding and appreciation of the arts by providing performances of an artistic nature in public places, senior citizens homes, churches, community centers, and educational institutions, and also by providing seminars on topics relating to such performances;
-To provide instructional seminars on topics related to the performing and visual arts;
-To produce performing arts festivals for the purposes of educating and advancing the public's understanding and appreciation of performing arts, and to educate artists through participation in such festivals and related workshops.


The Wright Family Performing Arts and Entertainment Centre Foundation reviews all grants based on their merit:
-Only registered charities are eligible for grants.
-Organizations must demonstrate a strong and committed board, fiscal responsibility, and effective management.
-Projects must primarily benefit the residents of the Municipality of Strathroy-Caradoc and its neighboring communities. For projects located outside the Municipality, applicants should demonstrate how the project will also benefit the people of Strathroy-Caradoc.
-Pilot or demonstration projects must include provision for evaluation and a realistic plan for financial viability beyond the pilot stage.
