OVERVEW: The Capital Groups Companies Charitable Foundation supports a variety of theaters and theater organizations across the United States.
IP TAKE: This funder appears to offer general operating support grants more often than project specific grants.
PROFILE: Established in 1997, the Capital Groups Companies Charitable Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Capital Groups Companies, a financial services organization. The foundation keeps a low public profile, does not have a website dedicated to its corporate giving, and does not employ a paid staff. The company’s website briefly describes the foundation’s work as committed to the communities in which Capital Groups Companies operate and supporting environmental causes.
While the foundation does not have a giving program specifically dedicated to theater and theater organizations, it gives to both. Examples of past grantees include mostly smaller and local theater such as the Salvage Vanguard Theater and the Lobero Theatre Foundation.
Grant amounts vary widely, ranging from a low of just $100 to over $200,000. Most grants however, fall in the $1,000 to $20,000 range. The foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding at this time.
