Artist Calls and Opportunities: Theatre Grants

The Shubert Foundation

Deadline: 12-01-2014

The Shubert Foundation is dedicated to sustaining and advancing the live performing arts in the United States, with a particular emphasis on theatre and a secondary focus on dance.

In service of this mission, we provide general operating support to not-for-profit, professional resident theatre and dance companies, as well as some arts-related organizations that help support their development. Grant recipients must have track records of artistic achievement, administrative strength and fiscal responsibility.

If your organization is interested in applying for a grant, please review the Grant Applications section of this site to learn more about The Foundation’s Criteria, important Dates and Deadlines, and How to Apply for a Grant.


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.
