The New York City-based Shubert Foundation is dedicated to advancing live performing arts in the United States with a emphasis on theater and a secondary focus on dance. The Shubert Foundation awards unrestricted general operating support grants to U.S. nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations and not to individuals.
Nonprofit professional resident theater companies with an emphasis on producing rather than presenting organizations are the primary recipients. Plus, the Shubert Foundation also gives some grants to arts-related nonprofit organizations supporting the development of theater and dance and to graduate drama departments at private universities. The foundation does not provide funds for project support, audience development, direct subsidies of reduced-price admissions, media (film, TV, and radio) projects, renovation projects, or capital or endowment campaigns. Grants are awarded only to organizations that have an established track record artistically and fiscally. Grants are not made to agencies that disburse funds to individuals or other organizations.
“The Shubert Foundation, Inc. was established in 1945 by Lee and J.J. Shubert in memory of their brother Sam, and is the sole shareholder of The Shubert Organization, Inc., which currently owns/operates 21 theatres: 17 on Broadway, one Off-Broadway theatre (The Little Shubert), and one each in Boston and Philadelphia.” shubertfoundation.org
