Operating Support for Performing Arts Companies
The Shubert Foundation
The Shubert Foundation is dedicated to sustaining and advancing the live performing arts in the United States, with a particular emphasis on theatre and a secondary focus on dance. The Foundation provides general operating support to nonprofit, professional resident theatre and dance companies that have an established artistic and administrative track record, as well as a history of fiscal responsibility. A limited number of grants are also made to arts-related organizations that help support the development of theatre and dance, as well as graduate drama departments of private universities. Applications for theatre grants are due December 1, 2014. All other grant applications must be submitted by October 15, 2014. Grant application guidelines and forms are available on the Foundation's website.

Funds Available for Arts Program Research
National Endowment for the Arts
The Art Works Grant Program provides awards to support research that investigates the value and impact of the arts, either as individual components within the U.S. arts ecology or as the arts interact with each other and with other domains of American life. Funds are for research into several different areas such as the benefits of art, education and training, human impulse to create and express, societal capacities to innovate and express ideas, and many more topics.

Support for Community-Based Cultural Projects
ArtPlace America: National Grants Program
ArtPlace America is a collaboration of major regional and national foundations and financial institutions dedicated to positioning art and culture as a core sector of comprehensive community planning and development across the United States. ArtPlace's National Grants Program supports creative placemaking projects that involve cross-sector partners committed to strengthening the social, physical, and economic fabric of their communities. The program gives some emphasis to applications from selected localities; however, applications are welcome from all rural and urban regions all across the country, including the U.S. Territories. Grants will generally range between $50,000 and $500,000. Nonprofit organizations, local governing bodies, individual artists/designers, and for-profit organizations are eligible to apply. (Organizations without 501(c)(3) status or a city charter must apply through a nonprofit fiscal agent.) Letters of inquiry are due November 3, 2014. Visit the ArtPlace website to download the program's guidelines.

Support for Artists Involved in Social Engagement
Surdna Foundation: Artists Engaging in Social Change
The Surdna Foundation seeks to foster just and sustainable communities throughout the United States. The Foundation's Thriving Cultures program has issued a request for proposals (RFP) for the Artists Engaging in Social Change funding area, which supports programs that help artists and culture bearers of all artistic disciplines deepen our cultural understanding or help communities achieve social change. Grants will be provided for compelling projects that artists develop in response to their communities' specific challenges, as well as projects of artists whose long-term, deeply-rooted work has increased social engagement without necessarily being explicitly defined as "activist." Grants awarded will range from $25,000 to $150,000 over one- to two-year periods. The RFP is open to both nonprofit organizations and individual artists and culture bearers, but artists and collectives that are not incorporated as 501(c)(3)s must apply under a fiscal sponsor. The application deadline is November 12, 2014. Visit the Foundation's website to review the RFP.

U.S. Artists Participation in International Festivals Funded
USArtists International
USArtists International, administered by the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, is committed to ensuring that the impressive range of the performing arts in the United States is represented abroad, and that American artists can enhance their creative and professional development through participation at important international festivals. Support is available to American dance, music, and theater ensembles and solo artists that have been invited to perform at significant international festivals anywhere in the world outside of the United States and its territories. Grants, which generally range from $1,000 to $10,000, will seldom cover the applicant's total expenses. The application deadlines for the 2015 grant cycle are September 5 and December 5, 2014, and April 17, 2015. Eligibility details and application guidelines are available on the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation website.

The application deadline is December 15, 2014.
