Shubert Foundation – Theatre GrantsDeadline: December 1, 2014
The Shubert Foundation 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. Grants are made in the following areas:
- Theatre: 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.
- Dance: The Shubert Foundation views dance as a critical art form, one that is closely related to theatre. The criteria used for theatres are also applied to dance companies.
- Arts Organizations: Grants to organizations that help support the development of theatre and dance are based principally on an assessment of their work, as demonstrated by past and current performance. Impact, administrative strength and fiscal stability are factored into each evaluation.
- Education: A limited number of grants are made to graduate drama departments of private universities. These departments are evaluated principally in terms of their ability to train and develop theatre artists.
Amount: 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.
Eligibility: U.S.-based nonprofit organizations with 501(c)3 status.
Note: October 15 is the deadline for Dance, Arts Related Organizations, and Education applications. December 1 is the deadline for Theatre applications.
