Trusts and Foundations


Beyond our annual season of plays Griffin is committed to artistic development and education programs that provide access and training to emerging artists and school students. Griffin also regularly provides discounted tickets and free performances to local community groups.

The generous financial support of trusts and foundations is critical to maintaining and expanding these programs and we’re grateful to our current partners in these areas.

The CAL Cultural Fund supports the Griffin Award for new writing.

The Malcolm Robertson Foundation and the CAL Cultural Fund support our Griffin Studio program which provides career pathways for talented directors, writers and dramaturgs.

The Girgensohn Foundation supported Storylab in 2012 and 2013. Storylab was a week-long intensive program that explored cross-cultural and cross-artform performance making with young artists from diverse backgrounds.

The Robertson Foundation supports the commissioning of new work and the Griffin Ambassadors program, enabling 100 years 10 to 12 students to attend Griffin plays and workshops throughout the year.

If you feel that you could help support any of these programs in future years please contact Development Manager Will Harvey on 02 9332 1052 or
