BosPodPlay Awarded Grant by Bob Jolly Charitable Trust
Boston Podcast Players is proud to announce that it has been awarded a grant from The Bob Jolly Charitable Trust to support the podcast. The grant will enable us to continue recording interviews and play excerpts from Boston's best playwrights on a regular basis, and to begin to recompense contributing artists for their time and talent.
The Bob Jolly Charitable Trust, which was established in 2013 by the late actor Bob Jolly, to support local Boston-area theater artists.
From their Facebook page:
"The Bob Jolly Charitable Trust [is] a trust that beloved local actor Bob Jolly set up before he died that would benefit the Boston theater community. Any small company or theater artist in the greater Boston area (which might even extend to Worcester, New Bedford and Providence) is welcome to apply for a small grant, generally between $500 - $1000, up to $1500. Three times a year, a small advisory committee will review applications and make grants. Some of our general guidelines are that the grant would play a significant role in the overall budget of the project, and that grant money will often go to local artist fees and salaries. "Theater artists" in our definition may include actors, directors, writers, designers, dancers, technicians, and anyone contributing to the theatrical experience. One of Bob's personal goals was simply to make it a little bit easier to earn money as a theater artist in Boston, as he tried to do for almost 40 years.
