About BOLD Ventures

An offering of the BOLD Theater Women’s Leadership Circle, BOLD Ventures is a new program funded by the Helen Gurley Brown Foundation that offers micro-grants to artists and small organizations to develop new and innovative work for the American theater. Applications are by invitation only; however, we do accept unsolicited Letters of Intent from artists who wish to receive an application.

2021 Grant Overview

BOLD Ventures grants are in the range of $5,000 to $10,000 per project. Grants above $10,000 will only be awarded in extraordinary circumstances. The grant may cover no more than one half of project expenses.

Applications for the 2021 BOLD Ventures grant cycle will open April 1 and close May 21; grant award recipients will be notified by mid-June, with funds disbursed by early July. Grant activities must be completed within one year of the disbursement of funds (July 2022).

Projects must be theater pieces, programs or initiatives, and should fulfill one of the following artistic goals: take risks in form or content; shine new light on our socio-political climate; or prioritize access for a wide audience.  Projects must have a public showing within one year of grant approval.  The Helen Gurley Brown Foundation is most interested in supporting projects and artists for whom these grant funds will be pivotal and not just supplementary.

Eligibility Requirements

Eligible BOLD Ventures applicants include:

  • Independent artists, but please note: grant funds can only be disbursed to independent artists through a non-profit organization or a fiscal sponsor.
  • Organizations with an annual operating budget of $1M or less.
