Imagination Fort Worth has received a $65,000 grant from the Sid W. Richardson
Foundation to fund Imagination Fort Worth and it’s programing. The Sid W. Richardson
Foundation is known for providing grants that serve the people of Texas, especially for
educational-based organizations such as Imagination Fort Worth.
Imagination Fort Worth (IFW) was founded in 1989 in Fort Worth to increase and improve
arts experiences in learning. Our organization builds capacity in teachers and students with a wide array of educational experiences that provide artistic and cultural contexts for
classroom content. IFW produces and presents arts integrated educational programming,
free of charge for ALL LEARNERS, grades Pre K-12 to students in Fort Worth ISD.
Josh Carrizales, the Imagination Fort Worth Board President says “We are honored to
partner with the Sid W. Richardson Foundation. Their generous contribution has allowed us to expose students to rich and engaging programming with arts integrated right into
curriculum, such as our Summer Intensive with Texas Academy of Figurative Art (TAFA).”
Sid W. Richardson established the Foundation in 1947. When substantial income from assets from the late Mr. Richardson’s estate became available in 1962, the Foundation began its current program of distributing major grants. Although his interests reached beyond Texas and his personal contacts were worldwide, he retained his utmost concern for the people of his home state. Throughout the years, the Board of Directors and staff have sought to fulfill his vision; grants are made in support of educational, health, human service, and cultural programs and projects that serve the people of Texas.
Imagination Fort Worth is always looking for enthusiastic supporters to help unite arts and
minds, whether that is through donating, volunteering, or becoming a sponsor. For more
