About Theatre Community Fund: The mission and purpose of the Theatre Community Fund of Kansas City, is to support all theatre artists, technicians, and supporting staff in times of financial distress or hardship with volunteer support, food bank donations, and direct financial relief.
What This Grant Funds: TCF has created a monthly emergency fund. These funds are extremely limited and are subject to dispersal dependent on availibility. These funds are designated for unexpected emergency costs like a flat tire, or an overdue cell phone bill. If chosen for funding TCF will contact grantees to arrange the disbursement of funds. Applicants will be notified 7 days after the submission date with a notification letter informing the applicant of the Grant Panels decision.
Applicants must be actors, stage managers, designers or technicians who reside in the Greater Kansas City area and performed in, designed, or assisted at a local theater in the Greater Kansas City area. Applicants may apply once a month until funded. Applicants should be aware that they may only receive emergency funding twice in a calendar year. Members of TCF's executive grant committee are glad to answer any questions about eligibility and the grants process. Please email us at email@example.com
