The Westport Cultural Council is pleased to announce the Helen E. Ellis Trust grant application period is now closed and funding allocations have been made.  Applicants will be notified.

Helen E. Ellis (1889-1987) was a sculptor and Westport resident for over 50 years.  Dedicated to arts and culture, she was elected to the National Association of Women Artists and Sculptors.  During her life Ms. Ellis cultivated community-wide interests and encouraged others to develop their creative talents. The Helen E. Ellis Charitable Trust was created in her memory to fund the Westport community’s enjoyment and personal growth through creative activities.

WCC meets on the first Wednesday of each month at the Westport Town Hall Annex.  Please contact the Chair if you would like to be on the agenda.  For updated priorities of the Westport Cultural Council, please visit, and click on Grants and Frequently Asked Questions.
