The Shubert Foundation supports dance, theatre, and arts-related programs. Dance and Theatre applications 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.

Some organizations that help support the development of theatre and dance are eligible for funding. Grants to these art-related organizations are based principally on an assessment of their work, as demonstrated by past and current performance. Impact, administrative strength, and fiscal stability are also factored into each evaluation.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts not specified.

Eligibility: Applicants must be located in the US and have current 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status in order to be eligible for funding. The Foundation provides grants only to organizations that have an established artistic and administrative track record, as well as a history of fiscal responsibility. 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 (agencies that disburse funds to individuals or other organizations), media (film, TV, and radio), renovation projects, loans, capital or endowment campaigns.

Due Date: Theatre applications are due on December 1, 2018. All other applications are due on October 18, 2018.

The Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP) assists U.S. based APAP-member presenting professionals and their organizations and companies in building partnerships and collaborations with international touring artists, companies and their collaborators outside of the U.S., and to experience the work of artists from around the world in its cultural context.

These exchanges provide an opportunity for presenting professionals to expand and deepen their knowledge of artists, traditions, and cultures from around the world. APAP awards U.S. based presenting organizations, agents, managers, producers, individual artists, and groups of performing arts professionals traveling outside of the U.S. to see the work of artists and companies or to develop and advance projects with foreign artists and their collaborators.

Eligibility: All applicants must be active members of APAP at the time of submission, and membership must extend at least one month beyond proposed travel dates.

The Multi-Arts Production (MAP) Fund supports original live performance projects throughout the United States that embody a spirit of deep inquiry. MAP is particularly interested in supporting artists that question, disrupt, complicate, and challenge inherited notions of social and cultural hierarchy across the current American landscape, including issues of class, sexual orientation, gender, generation, faith, and other aspects of cultural difference.

Annually the fund supports up to 40 projects. As an anti-racist organization that does not support cultural appropriation, or oppressive project language, structures, or content, MAP supports artists who are trying to offer alternative artistic and social paradigms. MAP supports projects that address these concerns through the processes of creating and distributing live performance to the public, and/or through the content and themes of the work itself.

Grant Amount: Grant amounts range from $10,000 to $45,000.

Eligibility: MAP funding supports the creation, development, and distribution of new work only. Work sponsored must take place after July 1, 2019, and have a generative artist or artistic team at the time of the proposal. Applicants must apply with a nonprofit organization that acts as a fiscal conduit to receive, hold, and distribute money, plans to present the proposed project, plans to produce the proposed project, or plans to add creative vision, partnership, and/or non-cash resources to the proposed project.
