Help Yourself

Apply now to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion in American orchestras 

The League of American Orchestras’ Catalyst Fund is accepting applications now through Friday, December 6, 2019. The Catalyst Fund, 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, provides annual grants to help League-member orchestras build understanding of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) issues and to practice more effective EDI strategies. Successful Catalyst Fund applicants demonstrate a strong commitment to deepening their knowledge of EDI and to applying the principles in service to their communities.

In its first round, The Catalyst Fund awarded $554,955 to 23 orchestras across the country in support of activities including coaching, mentoring, and anti-bias workshops for musicians, board, and staff; creating formal EDI strategic plans; and conducting EDI audits that included written assessments, benchmarking, and indicators of progress.

The deadline to apply for the Catalyst Fund is Friday, December 6, 2019, with awards announced in spring 2020. For more information and to apply, visit the League’s Catalyst Fund webpage or contact catalyst@americanorchestras.org.
