General Operating Support for Nonprofit Theatre and Dance Companies in the US
The principal goal of The Shubert Foundation is to support not-for-profit, professional theatre and dance companies in the United States. The Foundation's Arts Related and Education programs are smaller than those of Theatre and Dance and necessarily limited.
The Shubert Foundation awards unrestricted grants for general operating support, rather than funding for specific projects.
Not-for-profit, professional theatres in the United States are the primary recipients of Shubert Foundation general operating support grants.
Theatres are evaluated individually and with appropriate allowance for size and resources. The standard for awarding these grants is 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 US.
Deadline for Theatre applications is December 4th. Applications must be received by The Shubert Foundation no later than 6 pm EST on this date.
