A.R.T./New York Receives $160,000 from The Shubert Foundation


NEW YORK CITY — The Shubert Foundation has awarded a record total of $30 million to 533 not-for-profit performing arts organizations across the United States. Two thousand nineteen marks the 38th consecutive year that the Foundation has increased its giving. “Our longstanding practice of providing help in the form of general operating support remains unchanged. We are convinced that talented artists and administrators are best able to decide how to use the funds we grant,” said Michael I. Sovern, The Shubert Foundation’s President.  

The Shubert Foundation is especially interested in providing support to professional resident theatre and dance companies that develop and produce new American work. “Every organization receiving a 2018 Foundation grant has demonstrated an extraordinary commitment to the performing arts,” said The Shubert Foundation’s Chairman, Philip J. Smith. “We want to help lift some of the financial burden so that the companies we support are able to focus on producing thought-provoking, relevant work for the widest possible audience.”

The Shubert Foundation is one the nation’s largest funders dedicated to unrestricted support for not-for-profit theatres, dance companies, professional theatre training programs, and related service agencies. Ranging from $10,000 to $325,000, the grants benefit a broad spectrum of arts organizations, from large to small, covering a wide range of locations, from urban to rural.

"The Shubert Foundation's deep commitment to the nonprofit theatre is the reason New York City is the theatre capital of the world. Our work truly wouldn't be possible without their general operating support. They make June the best month of the year!" said Ginny LouLoudes, Executive Director of A.R.T./New York.
