The Catalyst Fund is the League of American Orchestras’ new grant-making program to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) in America’s orchestras. Catalyst Fund grants ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 will be given to adult and youth orchestras to support the costs of retaining a skilled EDI practitioner to advance EDI learning objectives. The Catalyst Fund is supported by a three-year, $2.1 million grant to the League from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Learn more about The Catalyst Fund here.
Interested in applying to The Catalyst Fund? A League webinar on Friday, January 18 from to 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time will provide all the information you need to create a strong proposal. At the webinar, you’ll learn about the range of work that could be supported by the program and explore your own orchestra’s eligibility to apply. You’ll hear firsthand about the resources available to applicants and grantees, and be able to put your questions to the League’s expert advisor. The webinar is free to members of the League of American Orchestras.
