Awards from Foundations and other philanthropic organizations account annually for over half of the Festival’s income. These awards support general operating expenses and especially our educational programs and community outreach. In the current year, special grants have enabled the Festival to rebuild its website in order to more fully support our patrons, offer ever-more program and artist information, and expand access to and the reach of the GMF through the Digital Concert Hall and the livestreaming of concerts from The Smith. Foundation support is highly competitive and the success of the Geneva Music Festival in attracting foundation support is testament to its growing regional and national stature. We are deeply appreciative of this support and wish to acknowledge our gratitude to the following foundations and philanthropic organizations.
GMF was made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
