The Foundation, created by the late puppeteer, awards annual grants for the creation and development of innovative works of puppet theater. The Foundation offers three types of grants: Production grants ($7,000), which are awarded for the production of new works ready to be presented in the coming year; Workshop grants ($3,000), which are awarded for the development and workshopping of those new works; and Family grants ($4,000) which are awarded for the development of new and innovative 3works specifically for children, families, and teenagers. Grants are made only for the development of new works of live puppet theater. The Foundation does not award funds for the presentation or remounting of an existing work.
