In addition to its established grant program, the Kurt Weill Foundation cultivates relationships with professional arts organizations and leading educational institutions in connection with major projects and initiatives. Organizations may approach the Foundation with ideas for major projects, and the Foundation may on occasion present proposals to the organizations. Collaborative projects are developed through extended discussion between the Foundation and the organizations, and the Foundation provides substantial funding in order to make them possible.
Sponsorships might feature productions and/or audio/video recordings of Weill's or Blitzstein's stage works; festivals featuring Weill's music in a broader context; multiple performances in a series throughout a season or successive seasons or academic years; projects which include educational and scholarly components in conjunction with performances.
University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music's sponsored year-long Weill festival was profiled in the Kurt Weill Newsletter.
