Amateur Chamber Music Players (ACMP) Foundation
08/01/18 6:00 PM EST Receipt
Grants to USA, Canada, and International organizations for workshops that provide coaching and support for amateur musicians playing chamber music. Funding is available to reduce registration fees for participants, subsidize coaches’ salaries, and provide scholarships for participants.
ACMP defines a workshop as a program of coaching and playing that is no more than six weeks in duration. ACMP grants prioritize program costs above administration costs. Requests with a high level of administrative overhead are a lower priority for funding.
ACMP seeks to fund workshops which accomplish the following goals:
-Rekindle an enthusiasm and energy for chamber music playing
-Expand a player's knowledge of the chamber music repertoire
-Deepen insights and skill in the performance of chamber music
-Help players make new connections with other players
GrantWatch ID#: 180316
Grant proposals may not exceed 20% of total project budget.
Funding is for projects taking place after March 30, 2018.
Chamber Music Workshops Grants are awarded to non-profit organizations and others that present workshops for adult amateur chamber music players worldwide.
As a general guide, Chamber Music Workshop grants are primarily provided for chamber music workshops for adult amateurs while Community Music grants are provided for community-based chamber music programs for young musicians and others. If, because of project timing, a Workshop Grant application is received for a program that is not for adult amateurs, it must be for a program of 6 weeks or less duration and must comprise primarily of coaching and playing in chamber music in order to be eligible.
The following are not eligible for funding:
-Individual or group lessons in instrumental technique
-Instrument purchase or rental costs
-Choral and orchestral programs or general music education classes or workshops
-Activities intended for audience development
-Programs for college or university students
-In-school programs that are part of a regular school day
-Funds for general administration or fundraising
-Travel costs or instrument transportation for professional musicians
Grant application deadlines are moving to a new schedule in 2018. Upcoming deadlines are February 15, 2018 for projects taking place after March 30, 2018, and August 1, 2018 for projects taking place after September 15, 2018. The schedule moving forward will be Febrary 15 and August 1 annually.
Applications received after the end of business on the application due date (6:00 PM EST) will not be considered for funding.
Grant awards are announced within 45 days of each application deadline.
Applications must be clearly written and must be in English. Budgets must be expressed in U.S. dollars
Priority is given to applications that demonstrate a range of sources of support.
