John R. Oishei Foundation steps up to help NACC
NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. — A local foundation has announced a dollar-for-dollar challenge grant to restore thousands of dollars for the Niagara Arts and Cultural Center.
John R. Oishei Foundation says the challenge is in response to the Niagara Fall City Council's elimination of $30,000, despite it being passed in the city's 2013 annual budget.
Foundation representatives say it will match any dollar that the city council restores to the organization, up to $15,000.
Supporters of the NACC say the facility is important to school children and artists in Niagara Falls.
