Driehaus Foundation Invites Applications From Chicago Small Theater and Dance Companies

The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation is accepting applications for the second and final 2011 deadline of its funding program for small Chicago theater and dance companies. The program is supported in part by a grant from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

The program is designed specifically to address the needs of small professional theater and dance companies. Proposals will be accepted only from companies that emphasize professional presentation instead of education or community outreach.

Use of grants awarded through the program may be unrestricted. Grants will range from $3,000 to $10,000 and will be made to dance and theater companies that are based in the Chicago metropolitan area, have produced at least one show in the Chicago area, and have annual operating budgets of less than $150,000.

Visit the Driehaus Foundation Web site for complete program guidelines and application procedures.
