Grants for Writers
It is vital to support writers in times of need so that they can get back to doing what they do best. DGF provides emergency financial assistance to individual playwrights, composers, lyricists, and bookwriters in dire need of funds due to severe hardship or unexpected illness.
If you are a writer in need, we can help.
To be considered for an Emergency Grant, you must have had a play or musical produced for a paying audience anywhere in the United States or Canada, and/or published by a legitimate publishing/licensing company. Active members of the Dramatists Guild also qualify. Emergency Grants can only be awarded once per individual.
After submitting the Grant application form, please complete your application by sending a recent bank statement, resume or biography, and any other pertinent information you wish to include. Without this additional information, your application will be considered incomplete and considered ineligible for review. This information can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to the Foundation’s offices:
