Aaron Copland Fund for Music: Supplemental ProgramDeadline: October 31, 2014
In keeping with his lifelong devotion to contemporary music, Aaron Copland created the Aaron Copland Fund for Music. The Fund’s purpose is to encourage and improve public knowledge and appreciation of contemporary American music, and this grant program will support non-profit organizations that have a history of substantial commitment to contemporary American music.
Amount: Not stated. Other program grants from the Fund have averaged approximately $6,000. Grants may be made for operating support or programmatic costs.
Eligibility: Non-profit organizations that have a history of substantial commitment to contemporary American music but whose needs are not addressed by the Fund’s other programs of grant support for performing organizations and recording projects, such as presenters, festivals and music service organizations (including education/residency, library/archive and radio/TV). Organizations must have been in existence for two years.
