2018 TACA Grant Recipients
Since our establishment in 1967, we have awarded more than $28 million in grants to more than 150 emerging and established nonprofit arts organizations, large and small, throughout Dallas County. We also recruit, train and staff more than 70 volunteers in the community and nationally in researching, evaluating and awarding our grants.
Grantmaking is a critical component of our mission to support artistic excellence and impact in the arts. Through our grant programs we hope to not only strengthen the effectiveness and impact of arts organizations, but to also encourage innovation and risk-taking.

Cry Havoc Theater Company’s mission is to inspire young people with eye-opening theater. Too often, the training offered to young people means basic-level classes with no differentiation between the novice and the experienced student. The material young people are given to work with is, more often than not, simplistic or condescending. And, while numerous “pay to play” performance options exist, there is a scarcity of opportunity for students to be cast purely on their talent rather than on their ability to pay.
Cry Havoc Theater Company is changing this – one show at a time. Click below to learn more about Cry Havoc and the impact that they are making in our community.
