Intiman Theatre is getting a big holiday gift: a three-year, $400,000 matching grant toward its endowment fund, awarded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation’s Leading National Theatres Program.
Intiman currently has a $2 million endowment, composed of restricted and nonrestricted funds. The company will use the $400,000 Duke grant to establish a fund to ensure Intiman’s “long-term ability to produce works of substance and scale.”
Intiman is the first Seattle theater to win a grant in the Duke program and one of six companies selected this year. The others: Actors Theatre of Louisville; American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, Mass.; Baltimore’s Centerstage; The Public Theater in New York; and Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company.
