Aaron Copland Foundation
The Fund, created by the late American composer Aaron Copland, seeks to encourage and improve public knowledge and appreciation of contemporary American music. The Fund operates three grant programs, each with different deadlines. The recording programís objectives are to document and provide wider exposure for the music of contemporary American composers; to develop audiences for contemporary American music through record distribution and other retail markets; and to support the release and dissemination of recordings of previously unreleased contemporary American music and the reissuance of recordings that are no longer available. The objective of the performing ensembles program is to support performing organizations whose artistic excellence encourages and improves public knowledge and appreciation of serious contemporary American music. The supplemental program seeks to support nonprofits that have a history of substantial commitment to contemporary American music, but whose needs are not addressed by the Fundís programs of support for performing organizations and recording projects. Organizations whose principal function is to support a specific performing ensemble should apply to the Fundís performing ensembles program. The deadline is for the supplemental program grants. Additional information is available on the Web site.
