Previous Grant Projects (2008-2020)

The Fox Theatre Institute helps revitalize downtown districts by rehabilitating architecturally significant historic landmark buildings---like our own here at 660 Peachtree Street in midtown Atlanta. The success of the Fox Theatre Institute is also often part of larger partnered successes through local and regional non-profit and government organizations. The rehabilitation of historic buildings, especially theatres also creates jobs and retains and grows the arts in cities both large and small.


A vibrant theater thrives as the cornerstone of a historic downtown district lined with bustling shops, favorite restaurants, cocktail bars, and plenty of parking – all of whom benefit immeasurably from a season of sold-out shows. From creating new jobs, both within the theater and in surrounding businesses, to helping revitalize declining downtown districts, restoring historic theatre venues often results in saving much more than a historic structure. FTI works to help these struggling theaters build a framework of support that we hope sustains beloved local landmarks, as well as the businesses and communities that surround them, for generations to come.


Since its inception, FTI has collaborated on more than sixty historic theatre projects and contributed more than $1.8 Million in grant funds in theatres across Georgia. We also offer support to non-historic theatres through Georgia Presenters and other technical assistance.
