Arts Related Organization Grant

From The Shubert Foundation, Inc.

The Shubert Foundation is the nation’s largest funder dedicated to unrestricted funding of not-for-profit theatres and dance companies. The Shubert Foundation is especially interested in providing support to professional resident theatre and dance companies that develop and produce new American work.

Type of Support


Some organizations that help support the development of theatre are eligible for funding. Grants to these organizations 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. The program area of Arts Related Organizations is significantly smaller than those of Theatre and Dance and is necessarily limited.
