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

    Hello, Again; Marie Christine; The Wild Party

    "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

    Pulitzer Prize finalist for Thom Pain (based on nothing)

    "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."

    Katori Hall

    2010 Olivier Award winner for The Mountaintop
