    Giving Back to the Arts

A Brief Introduction

SAMRO FOUNDATION is involved in outreach programmes and sponsorship of the arts. The main objective is to create and maintain an environment in which the arts in South Africa may flourish. This includes giving broad support to composers, musicians, and arts organizations in South Africa. The Foundation offers some of the largest scholarships and bursaries for music students in the country, and our Overseas Scholarships have helped boost the careers of many well-known performers.

Our Music Archive, which holds over 100,000 music scores, serves as a resource for researchers and artists. Through our newly created Stakeholder Hub, we build relationships with other arts organizations and help incubate growing businesses. SAMRO FOUNDATION has undergone a lot of growth recently, and we will always stay true to our vision of investing in the value of music.
