Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe Receives Shubert Foundation Grant

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY JUL 20, 2020

Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe, the only professional Black theater company on Florida's West Coast and one of only three in Florida, was thrilled to recently receive its first-ever grant from the Shubert Foundation. The funding in the amount of $10,000 will support WBTT’s 2020-2021 performance season. The Shubert Foundation is the nation's largest funder dedicated to unrestricted funding of not-for-profit theatres, dance companies, professional theatre training programs, and related service agencies.  “Especially as we work to overcome challenges due to the economic impacts of the coronavirus, securing new funding streams is critical to our long-term financial well-being,” said Julie Leach, executive director of WBTT. “We are particularly excited since this is our first year receiving a grant from the Shubert Foundation. We look forward to developing a deeper relationship with this generous and vital funder in coming years.”
