The Barbara Bell Cumming Foundation is now the Barbara Bell Cumming charitable Trust and is under the management of new Trustees. For more than 20 years, Barbara Bell Cumming's foundation supported nonprofit theater, dance, music and production companies in the NYC area. The Charitable Trust will continue to support the performing arts, but will now fund larger projects for fewer numbers of organizations, and will expand its support to include related fields such as arts education. To streamline its grant-making, the Charitable Trust will not accept unsolicited grant proposals. For 2017, select organizations previously supported by the Barbara Bell Cumming Foundation have been invited to submit proposals.
