The Foundation provides general operating support to professional resident theatre and dance companies, as well as some arts-related organizations that help support their development.
The Foundation considers the following when awarding theatre grants: Theatres are evaluated based on an assessment of each organization’s operation and its contribution to the field. Artistic achievement, administrative strength, and fiscal stability are factored into each evaluation, as is the company’s development of new work and other significant contributions to the field of professional theatre in the U.S.
