Musicians Foundation

New York, NY

In today’s volatile professional climate, many musicians experience greater financial risk than ever before. Musicians Foundation provides aid that enables performers, educators, composers, and arrangers to continue pursuing their artistic process and vision. As the oldest non-profit of its kind in the United States, Musicians Foundation is dedicated to assisting musicians, and their families, in times of emergency, crisis, or transition. Our goal is to relieve the financial burdens of musicians who qualify according to the Foundation’s criteria.

Musicians Foundation has helped sustain the creative life of thousands of musicians throughout the United States since 1914. The organization’s more-than-100-year reputation speaks for itself—a longevity supported by generations of individual and corporate donors, carefully planned fundraising events, targeted outreach, and the maintenance of fruitful collaborations with like-minded groups.

Resource Directory Logo
The act of submitting creative work for a dramatist is as necessary as finishing it. But the process of finding the right submission opportunity can feel overwhelming. This is why, for more than 20 years, the Dramatists Guild has compiled a submissions and opportunities database, and published a full directory of theatres, agents, festivals, contests, workshops, retreats, and other submission opportunities to help make the life of the dramatist an easier one.

This functionality is part of suite of resources designed to help playwrights, composers, lyricists and librettists.  

Only active members or subscribers of the Guild may use the Resource Directory.
