The Desk Drawer Fund is proud to support the Arts Council of Greater Lansing under the Arts and Culture philanthropic pillar. The Arts and Culture pillar supports theater, the visual arts, and artists to establish and promote creativity in the MSUFCU and OU Credit Union communities.


The Arts Council’s mission is to promote and strengthen creativity in Greater Lansing. The Council educates, advocates, and celebrates artists in the community through various grants, events, and membership.


Art in the Sky Billboard, an annual competition, allows for local artists to showcase their talents and passions. The juried art is displayed on billboards throughout the area, which helps to bring awareness and remind the community of the importance of the arts. The Arts Council also provides programs such as, smARTS and Young Creatives, to better professional development for creatives and Friday Arts Night Out, to entertain the community with performances, exhibits, and street art.


“The Arts Council is so grateful for all of the funding support we receive from the Desk Drawer Fund. Their continued sponsorship allows us to provide educational opportunities through our smARTS and Young Creatives programs and our Creative Placemaking Summit, and it makes events like our annual Holiday Glitter fundraiser, and our bi-monthly Arts Night Out possible,” says Art Council Interim Executive Director, Meghan Martin. “They help us provide offerings for the Greater Lansing community and make our organization stronger through their generosity.”
