Woodland Park Players has grants in the $500 to $1,000 range to be awarded in 2023 to organizations who need assistance to further their 2023-2024 program goals. Grant applications will be accepted for projects that bring arts opportunities to Seattle area public school students. 

WPP grants will be reviewed with an eye towards programs that serve:


  • diverse populations that are the farthest from educational justice

  • a large # of students

  • a variety of arts modalities (even though we are a musical theater company we'd like to fund programs for drama, dance, music, visual arts etc)

Applications will only be considered if all requested information is included.


WPP accepts applications yearly from Oct 1st to Jan 29th with grant recipients awarded in February. Please fill out the application and submit. For more information or questions, please email to:


Applications will be accepted October 1, 2022 – Jan. 29, 2023

Awards will be announced in February. 



In 2017 Ed Harowicz joined the Woodland Park Players. Little did we know what a vibrant and important part of our community he would become.  Ed brought so much to the WPP family during rehearsals, events and each time he stepped onto the stage. Ed was an inspirational board member, communitarian, player, friend and promoter of the arts. He was the epitome of joy. His spark and enthusiasm was plain for all to see, and often served as a reminder of why we do the things we do. His light will be missed. 

In his honor we have named our annual granting program after him.  May we always remember his contribution by supporting arts in education and spreading the joy of living.
