IMPORTANT NOTICE: FOUNDATION SUSPENDS GRANTS PROGRAM

Effective May 9, 2018, the Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation is suspending its production grants program. All grant proposals received before May 9 will be reviewed according to our usual process, and the organizations making those proposals may expect to hear back from the foundation over the coming weeks. We anticipate that we will again offer a limited grants program in 2019 and 2020. For details, please check this website after January 1, 2019.

The officers and advisory board of the foundation deeply regret this decision, made for the simple reason that, after 24 years, our resources have dwindled to the point that we can no longer fund the grants program. We are extremely proud of our work over the past two and a half decades, during which we have assisted more than 150 not-for-profit organizations in producing almost 200 individual works, including plays, musicals, performance works, fiction and nonfiction films and videos, operas, choral works, and other performing-arts events. We are equally proud of our grantees, who over the past quarter-century have so creatively mined LGBTQ history to fashion works that have informed and entertained LGBTQ audiences and the wider arts community.
