The Davey Foundation was created to honor the life of David Ross Fetzer and his commitment to the film and theatre arts. The Foundation is excited to make available grants to filmmakers and playwrights 35 and younger for the development of innovative film and theatre projects, and to provide the mentoring framework that will allow young artists to flourish.
