October 4, 2016 In: Sound Bits
Check out this exciting new grant program from the League of American Orchestras! From their 9/20/2016 news release:
The League of American Orchestras has launched the American Orchestras’ Future Fund, a new grantmaking program funded by the Ann & Gordon Getty Foundation.
The $4.5 million grants program will offer two-year organizational grants as well as short-term technical assistance grants. Three million dollars in grants will be available in the first cycle. U.S.-based adult and youth orchestras that are members of the League are eligible to apply.
The new program will build on and replace earlier Getty-funded and League-sponsored programs. The focus of the new, larger Futures Fund will be to support orchestras that are making significant investments in learning and innovation, and that also demonstrate potential to influence and ensure a positive future for American orchestras.
