Founded in 1987 by Elliott and Helen Carter, the Amphion Foundation was established to encourage the performance of contemporary concert music, particularly by American composers, through support to performing, presenting, and service organizations that have demonstrated sustained artistic excellence.
To that end, Amphion currently is inviting applications for its Grant Program. Through the program, general operating or special project support grants of up to $7,500 will be awarded to presenters, festivals, music service organizations, and other applicants that are not performing ensembles with a history of substantial commitment to contemporary concert music at a high level of excellence.
To be eligible, applicants must be publicly supported nonprofit or fiscally-sponsored organizations and have been in existence for at least two years at the time of application. Applications from organizations with a budget of more than $10 million will be considered only for project support.
See the Amphion Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
