Theater offers grants to nonprofits
DeKALB – Since the Egyptian Theatre was saved from demolition in the late 1970s, its vision has been a community-based one. The theater’s success has continually been embraced by both the arts community and the people of DeKalb County.
The theater’s mission is “to share and protect the historical integrity of the theater as a regional arts center for entertainment and community involvement.” In furthering this mission, the Egyptian has announced the Egyptian Theatre Community Grant Program, a new program which will provide grants to assist local nonprofits in renting the theater.
The Egyptian has maintained the rates it charges groups to rent the theater since 2006. As operation expenses have risen, the theater has become increasingly creative in finding ways to remain open and operating. Keeping the theater accessible to community use has been a top priority, so the board of directors and staff have worked hard to keep the burden of increased expenses off of the community groups that rent the theater.
