THRIVE! Uplifting Theatres of Color – Apr 18

Posted by Doris Duke Charitable Foundation on March 29, 2022

With support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and developed and administered by Theatre Communications Group with an Advisory Circle of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) theater leaders, THRIVE! Uplifting Theatres of Color is inviting applications.

THRIVE! provides unrestricted funds for those who have all too often been outside the grantmaking sector’s funding opportunities to include Black theaters, Indigenous theaters, and Theaters of Color (BITOC) based in the United States (including Tribal Nations and U.S. Territories) which are closely connected to and positively impact their chosen communities. THRIVE! aims to ease some of the pressures that BITOC face in fundraising by investing in their staff and artists and helping their organizational success beyond the scope of artistic projects and programming. To that end, grants will be awarded in two categories:

RESPOND: Twenty-five rapid response grants of $10,000 will be awarded to address immediate, time-sensitive challenges that prevent ongoing work with their community. Recipients of RESPOND grants will still be eligible to apply for RECOGNIZE grants. Applications are due April 19, 2022, at 11 p.m. ET.

RECOGNIZE: Twenty general operating grants of $50,000 will be awarded to BITOC demonstrating a deep level of service to their chosen communities, a clear vision guiding their ongoing and future work, and the highest potential for the THRIVE! program to positively impact their organization. In addition, during the grant program period, RECOGNIZE grantees will participate in REBUILD: A Learning Cohort, working with BIPOC consultants to strengthen their effectiveness in specific areas and may include financial planning, crisis management, scenario planning, and program evaluation. Additional opportunities will consist of awareness-building topics and intersectional programming. Applications are due May 6, 2022, at 11 p.m. ET.
