There are no more active grants from this agency.
The Frank and Lydia Bergen Foundation seeks to fund organizations that support musical performing arts and musical education. Preference will be given to requests for the following:
- Arrange for musical entertainment, concerts, and recitals appropriate for the education and instruction of the public in the musical arts. Paramount consideration, however, is given to traditional classical music programs.
- Aid worthy students of music to secure complete and adequate musical education.
- Aid organizations in their efforts to present fine music to the public, provided that such organizations are operated exclusively for educational purposes.
Approximately 26 grants between $5,000 and $20,000 will be awarded.
Applicants must be recognized as a 501(c)(3) organization by the Internal Revenue Service, and must be located in either New York or New Jersey. Except as otherwise specified when a grant is awarded, a progress report must be submitted within 6 months after receiving funds.
