The Charles Lamar Family Foundation Shaw Center Subsidy Grant provides funding assistance for organizations domiciled in EBR Parish with 501(c)(3) nonprofit status (colleges/universities, and public/private schools are eligible to apply) to rent Shaw Center spaces, including the Manship Theatre, Hartley/Vey Theatres, River Terrace, and Manship Gallery. This grant is generously funded by the Charles Lamar Family Foundation. The rental must be for an artistic or cultural activity the general public may attend.
Applications will be accepted throughout the year, with a deadline of at least 2 months in advance of the proposed event(s). Once funds in the grant pool are expended, applications can no longer be accepted. Allowable requests are half the official rental estimate for a program or event in the venue, up to a maximum of $3,500.
