About the Foundation

The Amphion Foundation, Inc., founded in 1987 by Elliott and Helen Carter, was established to encourage the performance of contemporary concert music, particularly by American composers, through support to performing and presenting organizations that have demonstrated sustained artistic excellence, in addition to service organizations. The Foundation’s mission is carried out through its grant program. The Foundation is also the principal legatee under the wills of Elliott and Helen Carter and supports performances and other projects relating to the music of Elliott Carter.
