Shubert gives out $18.2 mil in ’10 grants

Sum is higher than last year's total

The Shubert Foundation, the nonprofit arm of Broadway theater owner the Shubert Org, will hand out $18.2 million in 2010 grants to support 450 non-profit theater and dance companies across the country.

Total for the year is about $625,000 more than the coin the foundation handed out in 2009.

With grants ranging from $5,000 to $275,000 — and with no restrictions on how the funds are to be used — the largest amounts were given to heavyweight nonprofits Lincoln Center Theater and Chicago’s Goodman Theater.

Also on the list of orgs supported are Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, which received $155,000, and a wide range of regional bodies, including New Orleans-based new work presenter Southern Rep, which got $15,000.

“It’s funny how rare but important general operating funds are,” said Rachel Mann, the marketing manager at Southern Rep.

“The support of the Shubert (grant) increases our ability to push the envelope and take risks in producing new works. We couldn’t do what we do without it.”

The Shubert Foundation has given away more than $152 million in the past 10 years and increased the number of orgs it supports by more than 100 in that time.
