Our foundations Endowment funds and independent foundations
Förderfond Freunde der Alten Musik
The donations from the Fondateur are to establish and maintain on an ongoing basis a fund for the promotion and support of old classical music in “historically informed performances” from ca. 1200 to ca. 1900. A priority is in the support and promotion of young classical musicians and their musical projects. The fund may support the participation of musicians in music festivals and help support classic music festivals which perform old music. The fund may also contribute to and support other organisations having the same objectives of the support and promotion of old classical music and “historically informed” classical musicians. The Foundation has charitable character, has no commercial objectives and is not for profit. The Foundation will refrain from any political activity.
The Advisory Board decides on grants – conditional upon the formal approval of the Board of Trustees of Fondation des Fondateurs.
Daily management and screening have been delegated by the advisory board to Martin Straub.
