Fulfill Your Foundation’s Mission with a Grant to Asolo Rep

For over a half a century, grants from local and national foundations of all sizes have played a critical role in the support of Asolo Rep. Foundation gifts ensure that Asolo Rep is able to continue their time honored legacy of outstanding artistic excellence, bringing both national and international recognition to the theatre and Sarasota. Sponsoring Asolo Rep’s season productions and capital improvements will reflect your foundation’s commitment to the arts and build our community’s reputation as the “arts capital” of Florida.

In addition to artistic excellence, the mission of Asolo Rep is to be an outstanding teaching theatre, intensely focused on arts education to expand the horizons of our youth. With our foundation partners, we also bring a wide range of engaging education and outreach programs to students and adults. Through subsidized performances and educational outreach programs, your foundation will ensure that students from all economic backgrounds enjoy and benefit from involvement in the world of theatre.
