Booking with SDAC Grant

If your organization is a non-profit entity, and funding is available, you may be eligible for grant funding to defray booking fees.

The Jim Szana Trio will send you the necessary SDAC Touring Arts contract in triplicate to be signed by the authorized official of your organization. One copy of the completed contract should be retained for your files. The other two copies must be returned to the artist.

Once the program is completed, you must pay your share of the artist’s fee directly to the Touring Arts contact person. SDAC pays the matching funds directly to the Touring Arts contact person.

SDAC will send you a sponsor evaluation form to be completed and returned to our office within 30 days of the Touring Arts engagement. Failure to return the completed evaluation form to SDAC may result in an organization’s ineligibility to receive future Touring Arts funding.

Subsequent grants are dependent upon receipt of completed evaluation reports.
