Recent Grants Received
Milwaukee Public Theatre received a $20,000 grant from the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s Gerda A. Debelak Fund to support MPT’s Food for Thought project: a multi-faceted arts-based program designed to engage youth and families in activities that increase awareness and understanding of healthy eating, regular physical fitness and available local assets. The project includes the creation and tour of an original theatrework “Out to Lunch – the Fresh Food Variety Show”, and the workshops and arts residencies accompanying performances at seven community locations this summer.
MPT also was awarded a $20,000 grant from the Helen Bader Foundation to support its "Youth Arts in the City" programming, including touring outreach of original theatreworks like "Pieces: In My Own Voice” – about mental health for teens; a new show about violence prevention in partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs; StoryBridge, an intergenerational literacy program; and celebrational community arts workshops, events and other year-round arts residencies.
Thanks to your generous donations, MPT's healing arts programming will continue to support positive change in our community.
