Signatur Foundation Sweden is a foundation that seeks to support organisations and projects that aim to provide more people access to high quality music.

Signatur Foundation Sweden promotes high quality music

Signatur Foundation Sweden (Swedish: Signatur– Insamlingsstiftelse för musikfrämjande) seeks to support organisations and projects that aim to provide more people with access to broad qualitative music education and/or improve the opportunities for the public to enjoy high quality music. We aim to reach in particular those, not least young people, who otherwise may not have that experience.

Signatur Foundation Sweden is fulfilling its mission by funding projects implemented by partner organisations who share our passion for music and who have the capability to reach across diverse segments of society to inspire quality music making and improving access to music from a wide range of genres. Below are links to some of the projects we are currently supporting.


Following our successful 2021 applications round, our applications window is now open for projects starting in February 2023. Read more about applications to Signatur Foundation Sweden here:

Musicians about Signatur

”It is very important today that there are actors apart from the state that work independently in support of music life in Sweden. Signatur Foundation Sweden plays a significant role in that regard. The fact that they also incorporate a social dimension and education in their work makes them a critical organisation for Swedish music and cultural life as a whole and a tool to create a better society for all.”

David Huang, pianist and Christian Karlsen, conductor


Our Mission Statement

Together with likeminded partners we aim to create a force for an improved society with the help of the unifying power of music. We want to open doors to the world of music for everyone, focusing on opportunities to those who might not otherwise have the chance to actively engage in, or have access to high quality music and music education. We seek to act as a counterbalance to the trends in society towards superficiality and intolerance, building on the innate potential of music and musicianship to unite people across ages and cultures.

Absolutely crucial for AKT

“Support from Signatur Foundation Sweden is absolutely crucial for us to be able to implement the AKT programme, giving more young adults the opportunity to learn about the different professions linked to art and culture.  AKT aims to promote young adults as part of building a sustainable society where music and the power of song unite.”
