The Foundation’s core mission in the performing arts is to support not-for-profit producing and presenting organizations in New York City that deliver the highest quality work on stage in the fields of dance, music, opera and theatre.
The Foundation also supports a very limited number of pre-professional conservatory and development programs in New York City for early-career artists. Our current grant guidelines do not include support for primary and secondary level arts-in-education programs, broadcasting, spoken word, or media/visual arts projects that relate to live performance. In some years, if funds are available, special project grants might be awarded to address issues such as audience access, preservation, or other topics of importance to the field.
In accordance with the wishes of its founders, the Foundation sustains historic levels of support for select constituent organizations of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
