Shubert Foundation Offers Funding for U.S. Professional Theaters

Deadline: December 3, 2007

The Shubert Foundation ( ) annually awards unrestricted grants for general operating support to not-for-profit, professional resident theaters in the United States.

Shubert Foundation grants are awarded exclusively to U.S. organizations, which must have current 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. The foundation provides grants only to organizations that have an established artistic and administrative track record, as well as a history of fiscal responsibility. Grants are awarded 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 theater in the U.S. Criteria for children's theater correspond to those for theater companies.

The foundation does not make grants to individuals, nor does it provide funds for project support, audience development, direct subsidy of reduced-price admissions, conduit organizations, renovation projects, loans, or capital or endowment campaigns.

Recent grants from the foundation range from $5,000 to $275,000 each; the larger grants are generally awarded to organizations that have been on the foundation roster for several years.
