Grant Programs

National funders look to the League of American Orchestras for leadership in regranting funds to orchestras to help them address critical needs. Current programs are the American Orchestras’ Futures Fund and The Catalyst Fund. The Futures Fund, with support from the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation, is helping to spark a culture of innovation and experimentation among orchestras. The Catalyst Fund, with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and additional support from the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation, is helping orchestras by providing grants to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion through internal capacity building and organizational development.

Both of these forward-looking grant programs benefit not only the grantees, but the entire field. The League creates resources and learning events based on the grantees’ work so that all orchestras can learn from the their experiences.
