David Lee Foundation

  • Who?

    The David Lee Foundation aims to support, enhance and promote professional theater in Los Angeles County. It offers monetary grants to encourage the production of high-quality plays and musicals that, because of financial considerations, are seldom, if ever, done. Grants are given to supplement cast sizes, set and costume budgets, orchestras, and rehearsal time. Although new work may be considered, there is an emphasis on the vast canon of neglected works.

  • Grantees

    In September 2021, The David Lee Foundation granted $470,000 to support 25 professional theater groups in Los Angeles. The funding will support the theaters in their pandemic recovery and rebuilding and enable them to put on future productions. A complete list of the grantees can be found here.
