General Grants
for non-profit music organizations

The purpose of the BMI Foundation’s grants program is to further the creation, performance and study of contemporary music. There is an emphasis on classical, jazz, and the musical theatre genres and a preference for programs which directly involve living American composers. Funding decisions are made by the Foundation board with the aid of the distinguished songwriters, composers and publishers who serve as the Foundation’s Advisory Panel.

The grants cycle is by invitation only.  No unsolicited applications will be accepted.
