Trusts & Foundations Many trusts and foundations generously support the artistic programme and projects of the Elbphilharmonie. The trusts and foundations in summary.

The support of numerous beneficiary foundations enables the Elbphilharmonie to realise innovative concert and music education projects that reach people of all generations and set benchmarks in the international music scene.

The launch of the Körber fund »ZukunftsMusik« in 2006 began Körber Foundation’s regular commitment to supporting and enabling socially relevant projects in the Elbphilharmonie.

With its generous and continuous support since 2007, the Hans-Otto and Engelke Schümann Foundation has facilitated the first-class interior in the Elbphilharmonie Recital Hall.

The Haspa Music Foundation has made it its mission to contribute long-term to the development of Hamburg as a City of Music. It therefore also sponsors projects at the Elbphilharmonie and supports the »Long Night of Singing« and »Made in Hamburg« concert series in the 2019/20 season.

For more than 25 years, the Hubertus Wald Foundation has committed itself to the development of a high-quality music programme for children and to inspire children to get to know classical music. It funds the World of Instruments’ »Klassiko« programme.

The Cyril & Jutta A. Palmer Foundation helped to launch the »Teatime Classics« at the Laeiszhalle in 1998. Since the 2016/17 season it has enabled a further series: »Pianomania« in the new building on the Elbe.

With its keen interest in and commitment to music education, the Mara and Holger Cassens Foundation has supported the Laeiszhalle and Elbphilharmonie since 2011.

At the Elbphilharmonie, the G. u. L. Powalla Bunny's Foundation Hamburg supports matters close to the heart of the benefactor couple: good music and the outstanding landmark of the Hanseatic city. Since the adventurous Powallas have also travelled »Around the World«, the foundation promotes the subscription series of the same name.

The Claussen-Simon-Foundation supports talented young people in the areas of university and academia, school and education as well as arts and culture. With our Claussen-Simon-Composition-Award, we facilitate an aspiring composer, in collaboration with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, to compose a new work for full orchestra and first perform it at the Elbphilharmonie.
