The American Shakespeare Center is a proud recipient of grant funding from two prestigious philanthropic organizations - The Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge and The Schubert Foundation. Both organizations recognize the value of the work done at ASC and have lent their support to our world-class productions of plays by Shakespeare and his contemporaries as well as our programs for young people.
The Mission of the Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge is "to enrich quality of life by responding to needs and inspiring philanthropy in our community. The Community Foundation helps donors plan and carry out their charitable giving in our community, distributes grants and scholarships, and works to build a permanent endowment for our region. The Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge actively inspires philanthropy and civic engagement through a variety of outreach actvities."
Grant funding received from the Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge will allow the American Shakespeare Center to offer free and reduced price Blackfriars Playhouse tickets to middle school and high school students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to see live theater.
"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.
In service of this mission, we provide general operating support to not-for-profit, professional resident theatre and dance companies, as well as some arts-related organizations that help support their development. Grant recipients must have track records of artistic achievement, administrative strength and fiscal responsibility."
