Brown County Music Center gives back to the Community

Nashville, Ind. (January 24, 2024) – The Brown County Music Center in Nashville, Ind., today announced a gift of $267,000 to invest generously in the Brown County Community. Because of the forward-thinking management agreements that the venue and county leaders chose to implement, the Brown County Government and the Brown County Community Foundation (BCCF) will each receive a portion of the excess revenue generated from the ticket and food and drink sales from the Music Center.“We are ecstatic to fulfill our mission statement by dispersing these funds back into our wonderful community, of which should have extreme positive and far-reaching rippling effects,” said Brown County Music Center Executive Director Christian Webb. “While this is our inaugural year to disperse these funds into the community, we do not expect it to be our last. The continued efforts by venue staff, volunteers, board members and all community members alike will do nothing but serve this county for years to come.”As part of the agreement, when BCCF receives funds, they are split between funds that support Arts and Culture and the greatest community needs at that time. A portion of these funds are invested into a long-term endowment, so that the income from that endowment generates grant money each year. The remaining portion of the Music Center funds will be given out through grants.“The music center is an increasingly impactful part of our community and a strong driver of economic success for all of us. We are extremely grateful to have Music Center and county government leaders prioritize urgent and important community needs,” said Alice Susemichel, CEO of the BCCF. “With this important collaborative partnership, we can leverage the foundation’s unique knowledge and capacity to distribute assistance to a variety of nonprofit and community groups that serve our neighbors every day. The portion entrusted to a long-term endowment wisely ensures a significant impact for future generations. This funding defines Brown County as a compassionate and generous place to a very large audience and enhances both our quality of life and our reputation.”About the Brown County Music Center: Nestled on the banks of Salt Creek and located less than one mile from the largest state park in Indiana and the Town of Nashville, the Brown County Music Center is a visual and auditory masterpiece.
