The Foundation of the American
Theatre Critics Association, Inc.

Formed in 1991, Foundation ATCA is a public, not-for-profit, tax-exempt charitable corporation — organized under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code — that provides financial and other tangible support for scholarships, critics’ institutes, ATCA awards, educational talks and seminars and other eligible programs. All dues-paying members of ATCA are also members of the separate and distinct Foundation.

 

The Foundation has its own officers and board of directors, overlapping with ATCA’s, who work closely with ATCA to assist critics in their professional development and support the theater community in general. The Foundation has a set goal, not yet achieved, of raising sufficient funds to support its grants and programs from its annual investment income. For information on how to participate in or otherwise assist the Foundation, contact Jay Handelman, President, Foundation ATCA, 941-361-4931 or [email protected].
