What is the PPCA Performers’ Trust Foundation?

The PPCA Performers’ Trust Foundation provides grants of up to $3,000 for an individual or $5,000 for a group or organisation to promote and encourage music and the music-related performing arts.

Established in 1975, the PPCA Performers’ Trust Foundation provides grants to promote and encourage music and the music-related performing arts.

The grants provided are non-recurring (i.e. one-off grants rather than a periodical payment) and are determined by the four trustees of the trust.

  • Two (including the Chairman) are appointed by the PPCA;
  • One is appointed by the Musicians’ Union of Australia;
  • One is appointed by the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance (formerly Actors’ Equity).

On what basis can you apply for a grant?

All applications for grants are reviewed by the trustees and must be for one or more of the following purposes:

  • Performances at concerts at or for charitable institutions such as hospitals or aged homes;
  • Scholarships for the promotion and encouragement of musical and theatrical education;
  • The promotion and encouragement of the performing arts to the general public;
  • The aid or assistance of any beneficiary who is unable to adequately maintain herself/himself by her/his own exertions and other income.

When are applications considered?

The trustees typically meet four times a year (approximately once every three months) to consider applications.
