Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $30,000 to Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania nonprofit music organizations in eligible locations to advance music appreciation in new ways or to new communities. Funding may be used for milestone celebrations, innovative projects, and unique or first-time collaborations among music organizations. The Foundation supports a broad range of classical symphonic, chamber, choral and vocal music. Eligible organizations are located in one of the four above-mentioned states and within a 75-mile radius of Philadelphia.

Special Project grants will be given to music organizations for:

  • Pilot programs and first-time collaborations between existing music organizations and other artistic organizations (the music organization must be the applicant and grant recipient);
  • Significant anniversary celebrations of an organization and not of organizational personnel (must be a quarter century milestone – 25, 50, 75 years, etc.);
  • Initial grant funding for newly established music organizations (within 3 years); and
  • Efforts that the Trustees of the Foundation may encourage or initiate through a request for proposals to the field or to specific organizations (consistent with the Foundation’s Conflict of Interest Policy).

Given the current environment of uncertainty, the Special Projects Committee is open to considering creative proposals supporting ongoing music programming efforts which can be realized during this current fiscal year.
