History – In November 2012, EODL approved a proposal by the Treasurer and Foundation Chair to create some small-project grants that would be available to share with EODL Member Groups.  The grant monies would come from the revenue generated by the EODL Foundation Fund as well as EODL surplus funds.

Following are the Terms of Reference:

·     Groups may apply for funding up to $1,000 for a small project.

·     The project to be funded will be a stand-alone project rather than a contribution to a larger project.

·     Grants will not be given for operating expenses.

·     Depending on the EODL financial position, the number of grants awarded each year may vary.

Applications will be accepted in the following categories:

1.    Facility improvement (repairs, upgrades, paint etc.)

2.    Equipment purchase or upgrading (lights, sound equipment, tables, mirrors etc.)

3.    Education (workshops, play polishing, Festival Registration Fees etc.)

4.    Production-related expenses (special costumes or props for a show, rentals etc.)

·     Preference will be given to groups that have not received an EODL small-project grant in the previous five years.

·     The deadline for grant applications will be March 1.  The decision on recipients will be made at the Spring Festival EODL   meeting.  The grant cheque will be issued on June 15.

·     The Grants Committee will be made up of the Treasurer, the Finance Chair and the current Past-President of the Eastern Ontario Drama League.

In 2016, the Brighton Barn Theatre applied for a grant to financially help our project to improve our sound system. Specifically we asked for funding to purchase the necessary equipment to implement remote control of our new audio mixer.

We received the following message from EODL:

The Eastern Ontario Drama League was happy to receive Small Project Grant Applications from three member groups.

This year we were able to give a total of $2000 in grants. Because each of the proposals had real merit, the choice was made by a draw conducted in Peterborough on April 9.

We are delighted to tell you Brighton Barn Theatre was one of the winners!

Your cheque for $988.00 will be mailed to you on June 15.
