Theatre for a New Audience: Expanding Humanities Programming and Establishing a Humanities Endowment Fund

Endowment and bridge funding for new and expanded humanities programming, publications, and staff salary enhancements.

To accompany the opening of its first home in Downtown Brooklyn's BAM Cultural District, Theatre for a New Audience plans to launch an expanded humanities program. As part of its nearly-completed $56.5 million capital campaign, the Theatre will create a $10 million endowment that will support institutional operations, as well as wide-ranging artistic, educational and public initiatives. The Theatre requests an NEH Challenge grant of $500,000 to be matched 3:1 with non-federal funds. $300,000 is requested for three years of bridge support to launch new and expanded humanities programming while we build our endowment. The remaining $200,000, plus the entire match, will establish an endowed Fund for Humanities Programs and Publications within the $10 million endowment to ensure the stability and growth of these new initiatives.
