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, workshop endeavors, 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.
The Foundation is thrilled to announce that after 23 years of distinguished, wise, and collegial service on the Foundation’s Board of Directors, Jacqueline Taylor will move into a new role as our Deputy Director of Performing Arts. Jacqui is currently Director of Artistic Planning at the Bravo! Vail Music Festival in Colorado. Prior to joining Vail in 2010, she had a notable career in New York music, having been Managing Director of Performing Arts at the 92nd Street Y, Executive Director of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, and co-founder with Omus Hirshbein of the ”Free for All at Town Hall” concert series. We’re delighted to bring her back to NYC full-time. Because Jacqui has long been a part of Samuels grant-making as a Board member, we’re all confident and very pleased that her considerable field experience will now be part of our "front line” staff work.
