Jerome Robbins Foundation
|Category: Arts & Culture
The Foundation, named for famed Tony award-winning choreographer Jerome Robbins, was established to support dance, theater, and their ďassociativeĒ arts. In addition, some of the Foundationís philanthropy is directed toward AIDS-related organizations. All applications should include a complete description of the work or project needing funding as well as an itemized budget and/or audited financial statements. The description should not exceed three pages, excluding the financials, although additional material may be included in an appendix. For general support requests, a review of past activities and future plans should accompany the application. All applicants must include a list of past and present funding and a copy of the IRS tax-exempt statement. The Foundation strongly urges that applications for theater and dance be preceded by a videotape or DVD. AIDS-related applications will be considered only for those organizations serving New York Cityís Tri-state area that address basic adult necessities of life including medication and direct care, shelter, food, and employment training. At least two-thirds of an organizationís client base must be affected by issues of HIV or AIDS. The applicant organizationís primary focus must be on HIV-related issues. The Board meets quarterly to review applications.
