Benefits of Membership

Music Performance Fund

The Music Performance Fund (MPF), a non-profit, tax-exempt public service organization under section 501 (c) of the Internal Revenue Code. Headquartered in New York City, MPF is the world's largest sponsor of live, admission-free musical programs. Last year, MPF presented over 10,000 performances to the people of the United States and Canada. Millions of people in major U.S. and Canadian cities and villages enjoyed instrumental music of high quality without having to buy a ticket or belong to an organization in order to gain admittance. The Fund was established in 1948 by the recording companies of North America and the American Federation of Musicians as part of their collective bargaining agreement. A small royalty on the sale of some recorded music is contributed to the Fund by signatory recording companies, and these funds are supplemented by co-sponsoring organizations. There is never an admission charge for MPF performances, and its performances cannot be used to raise money, sell merchandise, or promote political or religious events
