Mission Statement of the Sugar Plump Fairies:
Through creativity, silliness, and fun-raising, The Sugar Plump Fairies seek to inspire the generosity of others in order to provide Auburn area youth with greater access to the Arts in all its forms.
Grant Program Description and Objectives:
The Sugar Plump Fairies use performance art and creativity to support good works in the community. We believe that the arts can open minds, provide inspiration, connect people across cultural, racial, and class boundaries, and generally enhance the quality of life for individuals and our community.
The Sugar Plump Fairy Grant Program, ARTrageous encourages creative projects which promote cultural diversity in the foothill area of Placer County through mini-grants, not to exceed $500.00.
