Grants

Shortly after its founding, The Brandywiners chose as their motto, "All for Fun and Fun for All." But this light-hearted philosophy masks a philanthropic effort that also has been maintained from the company's inception.

Brandywiners Chorale
The Brandywiners rehearse a choral selection.

Following their first performance, The Brandywiners gave $1,450 to the Mayor's Employment and Relief committee of the City of Wilmington. The Brandywiners are proud to have maintained that generous spirit for more than 80 years.

Proceeds from ticket sales for Brandywiners shows at Longwood Gardens are used to fund a variety of arts and cultural organizations in Delaware and southeastern Pennsylvania. More than $660,000 have been granted by The Brandywiners, Ltd. during its history. Typically, the grants are approved for projects and activities that have specific expenses associated with them, rather than for general operating expenses.
 

How to make a request

If you have a request for funding in the 2015 cycle, send a letter outlining your proposal and the amount you are requesting to:

Special Gifts Chairman 
c/o The Brandywiners, Ltd.
PO Box 248
Montchanin, DE 19710

Requests in this year's cycle must be postmarked by September 1, 2015.

All requests submitted by the deadline will be reviewed by the grants committee, and you will be notified in December of their funding recommendations, following the Board's approval at their late fall business meeting.
