is a new philanthropic force
dedicated to identifying and funding
new ways of engaging and presenting
Australian stories, arts and culture.

We are a passionate group of like-minded people collaborating to commission and fund innovative artistic projects. Rather than one individual or patron, the power of CMF lies in the group of individuals who actively choose to support a particular project. Together, we invest in Australian culture following the full creative process from idea to reality.

Creative Music Fund investors are uniquely able to personally experience the steps involved in making a cultural project through direct access to the magic of the creative development process including attendance at rehearsals. CMF’s contribution is not only to seed fund projects but also helping to raise the profile of the commissioned works and their impact.

CMF is an entry point for new ‘cultural philanthropists’ to get a taste for the potential and power of philanthropy and what it means to directly invest in Australia’s culture. The Creative Music Fund is completely pro-bono with 100% of funds supporting the artists.
