The Dramatists Guild Fund has been a resource to dramatists and non-profit theaters for over fifty years, providing aid and offering educational programs to countless individuals.

 

    "The Fund helped me at a very crucial time—most every writer knows what I'm talking about: that knuckle-gnawing period between a commission and royalty check. Because of the Fund, I was able to feed and shelter my piano (and myself) for a short, critical while."

    Michael John LaChiusa

    "I applied to the Fund when I was in real and totally unromantic trouble. Help arrived speedily and quietly in the form of a grant, which allowed me to pay my rent. The Fund does not dole out statues and plaques; it gives people help when people need help."

    Will Eno

    "The Dramatists Guild Fund is there to catch you when you fall. Jobless and unable to pay my rent, I thought I had nowhere to turn, but then I applied for an emergency grant from the DGF. With its financial support, the Dramatists Guild Fund helped me get through one of the toughest times of my career."
