Introduction & Purpose

The Committee for the Advancement of Music considers requests for grants of any size for general operating support of music organizations in order to advance the cause of music education or otherwise support music philanthropy.


Non-profit, 501(c)(3) music performance, presenting or educational (at the pre-collegiate level) organizations that are located in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware or Maryland and are within a 100-mile radius of Philadelphia are eligible to apply.

Institutions with whom the Foundation has a long funding history may be invited to apply for multi-year support.


Proposals will be judged on:

  • the strengths and accomplishments of the applicant organization,
  • the value of the organization’s program to the community,
  • the history and stability of the organization,
  • the contribution of the organization to the overall musical community.
