The Indie Theater Fund Assistance Program is intended to provide emergency or urgent assistance to those who have an acute need arising from an unforeseen and unavoidable situation which results in an additional hardship that will materially prevent or impede their Independent Theater production. Most often this will be the result of an act of god, illness, injury, accident or a crime for which there is little or no other assistance immediately available. We also provide Urgency Assistance to companies that are presented with an urgent opportunity that would significantly impact a production or the company and that they can not otherwise accept without funding support.
The Safety Net Fund is a non-profit designed to help support artists in the Bay Area during the COVID-19 crisis. As the world around us descends into bedlam, we turn towards each other to find hope, support, and community. We prioritize artists that typically make their living offline at events & retail establishments that have been cancelled or closed due to coronavirus. This includes performing artists, musicians, visual artists, event producers, and other types of creators. This fund will offer grants to artists, with no expectation of repayment, to help provide direct monetary support through this crisis. This money is offered with the intent of helping artists survive and continue to create despite the maelstrom. The maximum grant is $500 per person per month, and the number of grants per month is dependent upon the funds raised.
