Interested in advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion at your orchestra? Apply for a grant from the League of American Orchestras’ Catalyst Fund, which provides annual grants to help League-member orchestras increase their understanding of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) and to practice more effective EDI strategies. The Catalyst Fund is a three-year pilot program made possible by generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation with additional support from the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation. To learn more about the Catalyst Fund, register for the League’s Catalyzing Success: Applying for Grants from The Catalyst Fund webinar on Thursday, November 7 and watch this brief video in which Helen Cha-Pyo, artistic director and principal conductor of the New Jersey Youth Symphony, talks about the benefits of the program.
