Time Warner Foundation: Grants for Theater

OVERVIEW: The Time Warner Foundation supports diverse theater companies across the United States.

IP TAKE: While this funder supports some smaller theater institutions, it prioritizes larger ones. Grantseekers should contact the organization to establish a relationship. Theater companies in major cities are preferred.

PROFILE: The Time Warner Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the media corporation and its subsidiary companies. The foundation seeks “innovative and powerful ways to discover, nurture, and celebrate the next generation of storytellers.” One of the ways in which Time Warner does so is through its support of theater across the United States.

Unfortunately, Time Warner's website offers little information regarding grants and grant amounts. Tax filings reveal grants to be fairly substantial, ranging from $25,000 to over $300,000. Time Warner's theater grants support companies in larger cities like New York or Los Angeles, but grants do go to smaller organizations, such as the South Coast Reparatory in Costa Mesa, California. To get an idea of the types of organizations the foundation supports, explore its grants page.

Unfortunately, the Time Warner Foundation does not accept unsolicited letters of inquiry or requests for funding.
