ACF envisions a world where living music creators are celebrated as essential to human culture. We are leading catalysts in an ecosystem that invites generations of composers, artists, advocates, and audiences to pursue this vision with us.

Our Mission is to support and advocate for individuals and groups creating music today by demonstrating the vitality and relevance of their art.

What We Do

We connect artists with collaborators, organizations, audiences, and resources.
Through storytelling, publications, recordings, hosted gatherings, and industry leadership, we activate equitable opportunities for artists.
We provide direct funding and mentorship to a broad and diverse field of music creators, highlighting those who have been historically excluded from participation.
Our Core Values are Leadership, Anti-Racism, Courage, Support, and Curiosity.

We frame our work with a focus on racial equity and includes within that scope, but not limited to, diverse gender identities, musical approaches and perspectives, religions, ages, (dis)abilities, cultures, backgrounds, sexual orientations, and broad definitions of being "American."
