About the foundation

The foundation supports needy composers, lyricists and music publishers and their family members (taking tax regulations into consideration).

It promotes composers and lyricists by way of earmarked educational allowances, grants for musical productions, pilot projects, competitions and publications as well as by way of awarding prizes and running research projects with a special link to contemporary music.

Foundation funds are earnings from the foundation assets accrued from donations and from voluntary contributions. There is no legal claim to benefit from the foundation funds.
