Grants to Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland music-presenting nonprofits and educational institutions located within 100 miles of Philadelphia for projects that are outside the scope of normal operations, such as non-capital projects and collaborative efforts between organizations.

Proposals will be judged on:
- The strengths and accomplishments of the applicant organization(s);
- The relationship of the project to the applicant’s capabilities and to the needs of the community;
- The long-term impact of the project on the applicant and the community;
- The value and feasibility of the project.

Multi-year requests will be considered and should be submitted for projects that are greater than a year in duration. Second grants for subsequent years of a project will not be considered.

Nonprofit, 501(c)(3) music performance, presenting or educational organizations or a consortia of nonprofit organizations led by a music organization are eligible to apply.

Grants will be made with preference to organizations that are located in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware or Maryland and are within a 100-mile radius of Philadelphia.

Activities that are a regular, continuing part of an organization’s operation will not be considered for special project funding.

The Presser Foundation has implemented an online grant management system powered by Foundant. The system allows for all prospective and current grantees to submit proposals and reports online.
