Foundation to Provide Grants for Theater Groups

The Shubert Foundation in New York is dedicated to sustaining and advancing live performing arts in the United States, with a particular emphasis on theater and a secondary focus on dance.  The foundation awards unrestricted grants for general operating support rather than for specific project funding.

Grants are awarded exclusively to U.S. nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations.

While the foundation does not make grants to individuals, nonprofit professional resident theater companies are the primary recipients of Schubert Foundation funding emphasizing producing, rather than presenting, organizations.

Some funding is provided for dance companies and arts-related nonprofit organizations that help support the development of theater and dance, and to graduate drama departments at private universities.

Grants will be made only to organizations that have an established artistic and administrative track record as well as a pattern of fiscal responsibility.

The foundation does not provide funds for project support, audience development, direct subsidies of reduced-price admissions, media (film, TV, and radio), renovation projects, or capital or endowment campaigns. No grants are made to conduit organizations (agencies that disburse funds to individuals or other organizations). Applicants may not request a specific grant amount; if the foundation decides to fund an organization, it will also determine the amount of the grant. The foundation has two grant application timetables. Applications for the dance, arts related, and education categories must be submitted by October 15, 2014. Theater applications must be submitted by December 1, 2014.
