Gannett Foundation awards grants to 5 Volusia-Flagler-St. Johns nonprofits



The Hub on Canal has worked for a decade to bring the arts to the community in New Symrna Beach through classes and workshops, exhibits and events. 

Now, with a little extra funding, they’ll be able to bring art to the area through new means: technology.

After crowdfunding nearly $21,000 and receiving a grant for $2,777 from the Gannett Foundation’s A Community Thrives initiative, The Hub — and four other non-profits in Volusia and Flagler counties — are one step closer to achieving their goals.

They are among hundreds of organizations around the country, including dozens in Florida, to receive grant via the A Community Thrives initiative.
