About this funder:



The principal goal of The Shubert Foundation is to support not-for-profit, professional theatre and dance companies in the United States. The program areas of Arts Related Organizations and Education are smaller than those of Theatre and Dance and necessarily limited. The Shubert Foundation awards unrestricted grants for general operating support, rather than funding for specific projects.

Grant Programs: Arts Related Organizations

Some organizations that help support the development of theatre and dance 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.

Funding Criteria

Criteria range from the general to those specific to each applicant; they include:

  • Record of artistic achievement
  • Impact of the organization and its programs
  • Record of developing new work
  • Other significant contributions to the field
  • Administrative strength
  • Ability to generate both earned and contributed income
  • Fiscal stability

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Grants are awarded exclusively to US organizations, which must 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), renovation projects, loans, capital or endowment campaigns.
