The Mahler Foundation was founded by Marina Mahler, the granddaughter of Gustav and Alma Mahler. It initiates positive change by supporting projects that draw upon the transformative power of Gustav Mahler’s legacy.
Through support of projects in the contemporary arts, environment and music education, the foundation hopes to foster community, refresh our awareness of nature as the inspiration for creativity and speak to humanity’s common purposes. The foundation believes that art illuminates our essence and as such can serve as a vehicle for improving life, that awakening the imagination engenders compassion.
