The program, according to a press release, supports organizations "whose activities bolster the national infrastructure of the arts. Grantees consist of national organizations that have a prior funding relationship with the foundation and whose applications could clarify their multi-year organizational objectives, a plan for achieving them and benchmarks against which progress toward them could be measured."
“While we often fund new projects or activities, our Core Support initiative recognizes the irreplaceable value of the ongoing programs and services these organizations provide, such as leadership training, conferences, publications or research,” said Ben Cameron, program director for the Arts at DDCF, in a statement. “Grants to these national organizations ultimately contribute to the better health of dance companies, theatre companies, jazz ensembles and presenters throughout the country. We are delighted to support these nine important organizations through two-year grants designed to support both short- and long-term needs.”
