The window to apply for Cities 97 Sampler proceeds is open from the beginning of June through the beginning of October each year. Over the next few months, we'll be reviewing the applications for proceeds from Sampler 23 and will announce recipients this spring. Please check back in June 2012 to apply for next year's proceeds.


It was both a heartbreaking and rewarding experience to review the more than 440 applications we received for a grant from Cities 97 Sampler Volume 22 proceeds. There are so many deserving organizations tirelessly helping others in our community. Your purchase generated $750,000 and we are forever grateful for your on-going support of The Sampler.
