The Robert Sterling Clark Foundation has awarded $200,000 to the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) in support of the U.S. Department of State’s Center StageSM effort.

“Center Stage℠ exemplifies the foundation’s effort to promote global understanding through international arts engagement,” said Margaret C. Ayers, president of the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation. “Our support of public-private partnerships with the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the Department of State gives us the opportunity to acknowledge, promote, and enlarge the Foundation’s role in funding international arts and cultural engagement on behalf of our country and its artists. We are extremely proud of our partnership in support of the Center StageSM program developed by the New England Foundation for the Arts in collaboration with the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and hope that our participation will encourage other private foundations to become involved in international cultural engagement.”
