Mission

“Established in Vaduz, Liechtenstein in 1987 with the belief that, after all, our greatest legacy to future generations is art and music.”

Purpose

“The International Music and Art Foundation contributes to recognized and established organizations in the performing arts such as opera companies, symphony orchestras, chamber music ensembles, ballet and theater companies, etc.; for architectural restorations and for the conservation of art; to museums; and for research and publication on the history of art.”

The International Music and Art Foundation makes Donations ranging in size from several hundred to several hundred thousand Swiss Francs, with a median of 12,932 Swiss Francs. Our average Donation is 28,163 Swiss Francs.

Total Donations paid in 2018 were CHF 1,014,236, allocated as follows: 59.34% (CHF 601,643) to recognized and established organizations in the performing arts such as opera houses, symphony orchestras, chamber music ensembles, ballet and theatre companies, etc. (23); 8.71% (CHF 88,260) for architectural restorations and for the conservation of art (5); 4.97% (CHF 50.392) to museums (4); and 26.99% (CHF 273,649) for research and publication on the history of art (4); for a total of 36 Donations.

Whenever possible, the Foundation prefers to issue challenges conditional on matching Foundation Donations with funds from other sources. The Foundation Fund may be increased at any time by donations from third parties.

Donations are NOT made to individuals, nor for the establishment of new organizations, for travel expenses, for meetings, workshops, conferences, or seminars held for the purpose of planning or organizing a project or activity. On-line Applications are NOT accepted from organizations whose primary mission is for youth programs, humanitarian programs, or programs that have social improvement objectives.

All recipients must provide detailed financial reports and maintain complete records documenting the use of the Donation. The International Music and Art Foundation may make periodic site visits and whatever other investigations it deems important.

The Foundation expects tangible outcomes from all Donations, and will require a written report from the recipient detailing how the Foundation’s support was used and accounting for all expenditure of funds at the end of the project, or annually if the Donation extends beyond one year.

Funded project designs often reflect a blend of the applicant’s initiative and the Foundation’s input. The International Music and Art Foundation recognizes that promising approaches and worthwhile organizations often need more than financial assistance. Therefore, the Members of the Foundation’s Board may serve as Board Members of compatible organizations and, if appropriate, will participate on policy and advisory bodies consistent with the Foundation’s interests. The Foundation welcomes collaboration with other Donors and favors proposals with multiple sources of support.

Only On-Line Applications will be accepted. Applications sent by postal mail will be discarded.
