Lucille Lortel Foundation Seeks Grant Applicants
The Foundation has already distributed more than $1,000,000 in such grants. It was established by and named for the legendary producer, theater owner, and philanthropist who died in 1999. According to foundation president James J. Ross, "Lucille Lortel gave generously to not-for-profit theaters throughout her life, and these grants continue her long-standing philanthropy. She was particularly responsive to the needs of struggling theaters, which is why we are focusing our attention on the small and mid-size theatres -- because we see them facing the greatest challenges right now."
