​GRANT PROCESS

We thank our generous members for
helping make these grants possible!

FGT’s mission is to provide funding to the Greeley Theatre Department/Greeley Theatre  Company for the purchase of equipment and materials that are not covered in the Chappaqua Schools’ budget. While many grants are made for use in a specific production, others can be for special projects. For example, FGT is currently designating $500 per year towards the purchase and installation of a storage facility on the Greeley campus for sets, props and costumes.

Funds, not specific items, are given in the form of gifts to the Chappaqua Central School District.  The Chappaqua Board of Education reviews gift proposals at its public meetings and votes to either accept or reject them.

The Greeley Theatre Department Chair submits a grant proposal along with an estimated budget for the productions for which some or all of the requested funds will be used. Grant proposals must meet the following criteria:

 

  • Grant funds are to be used for the purchase of equipment and materials not covered by the Chappaqua Schools’ budget.

  • Proposals should benefit the maximum number of students possible.

  • Priority will be given to grant items that can be used for more than one production.

  • Funds requested cannot exceed 25% of the estimated budget of the production for which some or all of the funds will be used.
