Grants for Research, Collaboration, Or Public Awareness for Key U.S. Dance, Jazz, Presenting, Or Theater Fields

From The Foundation Center...

Doris Duke Charitable Foundation's Arts Program Announces National Projects Fund

Deadline: Open

As part of a new initiative to help strengthen the national performing arts sector, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation's ( http://www.ddcf.org/ ) Arts Program will support select national projects that strengthen the health of the dance, jazz, presenting, and/or theater fields.

During a two-year pilot phase, the National Projects Fund will award a total of up to $1 million in grants to support key national projects in the dance, jazz, presenting, and/or theater fields. Grants will range from $60,000 to $200,000 each, and cannot exceed 40 percent of a project's total cost. National projects engage a broad national constituency, occur once (or periodically) rather than annually, and have the potential to significantly impact a field.

Types of projects eligible for support include national research, national public awareness activities, cross-discipline collaborations (including national meetings or conventions), and other national activities. Single nonprofit organizations and consortia are eligible to apply. Organizations receiving core support from DDCF are not eligible to request additional support from the National Projects Fund for single-discipline activities. Pilot programs that aspire to be a national model are not eligible to apply, nor are national dance, jazz, or theater commissions, productions, or tours. Arts Program staff will review Letters of Inquiry on a rolling basis.
