The Saints encourage theater, dance, and music organizations to apply for our grant assistance to be used for artistic development or production-related purposes. Some examples applicants can request funding for but are not limited to: Covid compliance, costumes/puppetry, the commissioning or licensing of works, improvements to applicant-owned premises, community engagement and enrichment projects, or computer and technical items such as sound or lighting needs.
Budget requests for mini grants up to $2,500 will be considered for projects occurring from September 1, 2021 through May 31, 2022. Requesting organizations must be 501(c)(3) and have been established for a minimum of three years. This is a short turn-around cycle in these uncertain times with an application timeline from October 15 – November 15, 2021. Please be sure to read the criteria for the 2021 application.
The live Grant application link will be available at saintschicago.org on October 15. Online applications will be accepted through November 15, 2021.
We look forward to reviewing your best project ideas!
