The Amphion Foundation encourages applicants to consider the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion in their programming decisions whenever possible.

The Amphion Foundation's grant program's objective is to encourage the performance of contemporary concert music, particularly by American composers, through support to non-profit performing and presenting organizations that have demonstrated sustained artistic excellence, in addition to music service organizations and other organizations that support contemporary music.

The Amphion Foundation grant program has two deadlines: a performing ensemble deadline in the spring, and a deadline for all other applicants in the fall.

READ THE GUIDELINES BEFORE APPLYING

There will be no letter of intent to submit prior to applying to the program.

The Foundation requires use of its 3-year budget Excel template.  Other budget documents are not accepted and should not be uploaded to the application.  As part of the form, you will find space to make any explanatory notes you find necessary.

Chamber ensembles (those comprised of under 20 performers), service organizations and presenters are eligible to apply for general operating support.  Large organizations such as orchestras and opera companies, other than contemporary music specialists, are eligible to apply only for project support.

Except in rare circumstances, projects that take place before the deadline will not be considered.

Organizational budgets refer to three consecutive years of revenue and expense statements:

  • the actual statement from the preceding fiscal year
  • a projected statement (budget) for the current fiscal year
  • a projected statement (budget) for the fiscal year for which support is requested

We require using our Excel template to create your organizational budgets; the template incorporates the format and level of detail we wish to see.
