We are happy to announce that Eliot Hall, the home of The Footlight Club, has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council Cultural Facilities Fund to support a complete assessment of our historic building for the purpose of creating a master building preservation and accessibility plan.
We extend our thanks to those who supported us in our successful grant application including: Mayor Thomas Menino, Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz, Representative Jeffrey Sanchez, Platt Anderson Freeman Architects, Simpson Gumpertz & Heger, The Eliot School, Jamaica Plain Tuesday Club at Loring-Greenough House, Friends of the Jamaica Plain Library, Hyde Square Task Force, Costello’s Tavern, Galway House, Uforge Gallery, Jamaica Plain Arts Council, and the Jamaica Plain Artists Association. We know there is a lot of work to be done to preserve our historic home, and this grant will create our roadmap for Eliot Hall’s future.
Now…we need your help. We are required to raise an additional $25,000 to match this $25,000 grant. A gift of any size will help us reach that goal.
