Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To increase the arts budget to continue our traditional visual and performing arts offerings and to resume our Saturday Night Outdoor Concert in August. Evaluations of concerts are conducted by audience exit surveys. For art exhibits, a visitor's book is used for comments and evaluations. Activities are evaluated by the Terrace Mill Foundation board of directors. Cost effectiveness and success of projects are judged successful by the number of attendees, free will offerings, ticket sales and feedback from Terrace Mill Foundation members and volunteers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The Support Grant increased our arts budget for the season. The funds enabled us to expand our arts offering to include an August Saturday Night Outdoor Concert in addition to the annual Art Crawl, Children's Theater, Wheller Gallery Exhibit and Fall Festival. Activities are evaluated by the TMF Board of Directors. Cost effectiveness and success of projects are judged successful by the number of attendees, free will offerings, ticket sales and feedback from TMF members and volunteers.
